An inspiring guide to authentic living according to the philosophy of the groundbreaking philosopher Simone de Beauvoir, by leading US philosophy professor Skye Cleary.

'Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.'

So said Simone de Beauvoir, the world's most famous female philosopher. In this galvanising tour of her rebellious philosophies for life by a leading Columbia professor, we learn how de Beauvoir can teach us to free ourselves of fears and stereotypes and live more authentically. After all, who hasn't woken up and thought 'I don't feel like myself today'? This book will show us the strategies for becoming our truest selves.

At home, at work, in love, families and friendship, Skye Cleary shows us how de Beauvoir's philosophy can help us become more attuned to living purposefully, thoughtfully, and with a little more rebellious spirit. An authentic life is the goal but, warning: happiness may be a side effect.
