Such an interesting book about our tendency to judge our worthiness against others opinions. Really thought provoking. Would be worth reading again. I can't find my notes, but they were extensive.

Like other de Botton books, Status Anxiety is informative, entertaining, thought-provoking and funny. I recommend it.

This is a wonderful, sobering book that looks at the upside and downsides of our urge to "belong".
