This week’s prize is ‘The Path’ by Professor Michael Puett and Christine Gross-Loh, which is the non-fiction Book of the Month at Waterstone’s in King’s Lynn.
Michael Puett is said to be Harvard’s most popular professor, presenting lectures on Chinese philosophy to some 700 students at a time.
“In order to ‘think big’ we must first think small,” he says.
The Path is the first book of its kind and offers a profound guide to living well. It reveals for the first time how the timeless wisdom of ancient Chinese philosophers can transform the way we think about ourselves.
Covering subjects from decision-making to relationships, it shows how making small changes in our everyday routines – as simple as showing weaknesses in meetings or greeting people differently – can make us happier and more productive.
The Path makes this largely unknown body of thought accessible to everyone for the first time.
For your chance of winning a copy of the book, supplied by Waterstone’s of Norfolk Street, Lynn, just answer this question:
