We all want to live in a better world, but sometimes it feels like we lack the ability to make a difference. Author, broadcaster, and journalist John-Paul Flintoff offers a powerful reminder that through the generations, society has been transformed by the actions of individuals who understood that if they didn’t like something, they could change it.

Combining fresh new insights from history and other disciplines, this book will give you a sense of what might just be possible, as well as the inspiration and the courage you need to go about improving and changing the world we live in.
 
The School of Life is dedicated to exploring life’s big questions: How can we fulfill our potential? Can work be inspiring? Why does community matter? Can relationships last a lifetime? We don’t have all the answers, but we will direct you toward a variety of useful ideas—from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts—that are guaranteed to stimulate, provoke, nourish, and console.

Praise for How to Change the World

“Self-Help Books For the Rest of Us.”—The New York Times

“In an age of moral and practical confusions, the self-help book is crying out to be redesigned and rehabilitated. The School of Life announces a rebirth with a series that examines the great issues of life, including money, sanity, work, technology, and the desire to alter the world for the better.”—Alain de Botton, The School of Life Series Editor

“The School of Life offers radical ways to help us raid the treasure trove of human knowledge.”—The Independent on Sunday (London)

Praise for Comp: A Survivor's Tale

“Flintoff has not written a history, though he has woven the essential historical facts into his nasrrative. He has done something far more rewarding and entertaining.”—The Times Literary Supplement (London)

“Entertaining and thoughtful...Flintoff is the gentlest of moralists.”—Financial Times (London)

“Manages to be both supremely entertaining and an invaluable social document.”—Telegraph (London)
