From one of the most influential thinkers of our time (Sunday Times), a hugely ambitious manifesto for living well today.
The World Beyond Your Head is a radical and inspiring investigation into human flourishing in a world of overwhelming choice and individualism.
In the follow-up to his inspiring bestseller The Case for Working with Your Hands, Matthew Crawford examines daily life as a whole - doing the shopping, sharing a meal, going to the park. He asks: with ever-increasing demands on our attention, and without the guidance once supplied by tradition and religion, how do we focus on whats really important in our lives?
This inspiring answer explains how we can establish meaningful connections with our world, the people around us, and our place in time. With his trademark wit, philosophical insight and reference to real-life experience, Crawford offers a radical critique of contemporary Western thinking
