A Sunday Times bestseller Longlisted for the Guardian first book award A Radio 4 Book of the Week.

This book is about learning to live. In simple stories of encounter between a psychoanalyst and his patients, The Examined Life reveals how the art of insight can illuminate the most complicated, confounding and human of experiences.

Ultimately, they show us not only how we lose ourselves but how we might find ourselves too.
