Status Anxiety by Alain de Botton

"Every adult life could be said to be defined by two great love stories. The first - the story of our quest for sexual love - is well known and well-charted. The second - the story of our quest for love from the world - is a more secret and shameful tale. And yet this second love story is no less intense than the first.'

This is a book about an almost universal anxiety that rarely gets mentioned directly: an anxiety about what others think of us; about whether we're judged a success or a failure, a winner or a loser. This is a book about status anxiety."

I just heard a commentary by the author, Alain de Botton, on NPR about defending your honor in the 21st century and decided to check out information on his latest book.

Very intriguing!
