Status Anxiety

This is a DVD about an almost universal anxiety that rarely gets mentioned directly: an anxiety about what others think of us; about whether we're judged a success or failure, a winner or a loser. This DVD is about Status Anxiety.

Alain de Botton, best-selling writer and presenter of Philosophy: A guide to Happiness asks - with lucidity and charm - where worries about our status come from and what if anything we can do to surmount them. With the help of philosophers, artists and writers, he examines the origins of status anxiety - ranging from the consequences of the French Revolution to our secret dismay at the success of our friends - before revealing ingenious ways in which people have learnt to overcome their worries in their search for happiness. We learn about sandal-less philosophers and topless bohemians, about the benefits of putting skulls on our sideboards and of looking at ruins.

The result is this 3-part DVD that isn't just highly entertaining and though-provoking, but genuinely wise and helpful as well.

Alain de Botton's Status Anxiety is the perfect DVD for anyone who needs to have their life put in perspective and step by step, day by day, this DVD will help us learn how to maximize our lives on this small little blue planet.

Presented in widescreen 16:9 with Dolby Digital 2.0, the quality of this disc will help portray the tranquility needed to change our lives. Unfortunately no special features are included on this disc. Recommended to everyone!
