About The Book

Insomnia: A Guide to and Consolation for the Restless Early Hours (School Of Life) is a book to offer guidance and consolation to the restless insomniac.

Not being able to sleep is deeply frightening. We panic about our ability to cope with the demands of the next day; we panic that we are panicking; the possibility of sleep recedes ever further as the clock counts down to another exhausted, irritable dawn.

Our societies have learnt to treat insomnia with the best applied discipline we know: medicine - in particular, with pills powerful enough to wrestle consciousness into submission. But there are other things to do besides, or alongside, medicalising insomnia.

    Author: Alain De Bottom; The School Of Life

    Publisher: The School Of Life

    Hardcover: 54 pages

    Book Dimensions: 15.9 x 1.3 x 18.4 cm 

    About The Author

    The School of Life is devoted to developing emotional intelligence. It addresses issues such as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one's past, how to achieve calm, and how better to understand and - where necessary - change the world.

    The School of Life Press brings together the thinking and ideas of the School of Life creative team under the direction of series editor, Alain de Botton. Their books share a coherent, curated message that speaks with one voice: calm, reassuring, and sane.

    Content Beauty Wellbeing London

     

    Regarded as London’s leading organic & natural apothecary, CONTENT was founded in 2008 to provide a home for the new wave of natural and organic beauty. In 2018, CONTENT evolved into a department store for all brands of the future.

    Excited by seeking out founders who are creating beautiful things and who are driven by a respect for both planet and people, CONTENT is home to a curated selection of natural and organic beauty brands teamed with an edit of conscious clothing, vintage clothing, recycled and handcrafted jewellery, fairtrade and vegan shoes, books and zero waste living products – making it a destination not just for green beauty fans, but also those seeking to shop their values across categories.

    A destination for the curious, those who like to ask questions, support makers and vote for a better world with their choices, CONTENT likes to do things differently - it's how we started back in 2008! Recent initiatives include:

    CONTENT Lock-Ins: Brand creators, wellbeing and sustainability experts are accessible through a series of evening events and workshops, helping to revive the lost British institution of the pub lock-in. Rather than the exclusivity of a members' club or VIP event, CONTENT Lock-Ins celebrate the inclusivity of a community, with customer-led themes to provide a space for learning and discovery across a diverse range of topics.

    Bye, Bye Perfect: Removing the word perfect from all CONTENT product descriptions on our website since 2017. Why? We think you are good enough just the way you are.

    VAT-Free Sanitary Products: Since 2017, we have paid the VAT on sanitary products for all CONTENT customers.

    Feminists Don’t Wear Pink: After the pop-up installation was removed from Topshop in 2018, CONTENT donated the window of our Marylebone store to the book publishers so they could continue to celebrate their inspirational book.
