Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Marie Kondo, but for your brain.” HelloGiggles.com
“Readers are challenged to discard their past and embrace the present, as the authors take on questions and arguments about moving forward in an Adlerian style…For those seeking a discourse that helps explain who they are in the world, Kishimi and Koga provide an illuminating conversation.” Library Journal
“Noah Galvin and Graham Malcolm create an engaging conversation as they narrate the parts of the younger and older man, respectively. Speaking as the young man, Galvin’s youthful voice projects confusion, disbelief, indignation, and even anger at the audacious theories put before him by the old man. As delivered by Malcolm, the old man’s voice exudes patience, wisdom, and calm…Narrator January LaVoy introduces the principles of this audiobook with a delightful persuasiveness that contributes to its overall sense of wisdom and enlightenment.” AudioFile
“Adlerian psychology meets Stoic philosophy in Socratic dialogue. Compelling from front to back. Highly recommended.” Marc Andreessen,venture capitalist and founder of Andreessen Horowitz
