Art as Therapy

Two authorities on popular culture reveal the ways in which art can enhance mood and enrich lives.

This passionate, thought-provoking, often funny, and always accessible book proposes a new way of looking at art, suggesting that it can be useful, relevant, and therapeutic. Through practical examples, the world-renowned authors argue that certain great works of art have clues as to how to manage the tensions and confusions of modern life. Chapters on love, nature, money, and politics show how art can help with many common difficulties, from forging good relationships to coming to terms with mortality.

Alain de Botton and John Armstrong
