Publisher's Summary

The Japanese phenomenon that teaches us the simple yet profound lessons required to liberate our real selves and find lasting happiness. 

The Courage to Be Disliked shows you how to unlock the power within yourself to become your best and truest self, change your future and find lasting happiness. Using the theories of Alfred Adler, one of the three giants of 19th-century psychology alongside Freud and Jung, the authors explain how we are all free to determine our own future - free of the shackles of past experiences, doubts and the expectations of others. 

It's a philosophy that's profoundly liberating, allowing us to develop the courage to change and to ignore the limitations that we and those around us can place on ourselves. The result is an audiobook that is both highly accessible and profound in its importance. Millions have already benefited from its wisdom. Now that The Courage to Be Disliked has been published in English, so can you. 

Please note: This is a recording of the 2018 print edition.

Fascinating concepts. hard to implement.

The concepts discussed in the book are fascinating. They are counter-intuitive and thus one resists accepting the ideas. but it is an important read/listen. one should try to incorporate its concepts in life as much as possible.

very good but not for everyone

i am so lucky to have read this. it's a must read for people who are people pleasers. the format of writing is of a dialogue so bit difficult to get used to at first. but you find it ok later on. those people who feel they are valuable only when someone appreciates their efforts, should definitely read this. the are in for a reality check. personally it gave me the power to be who I am and filled me up to make the right choices.
