How do we choose our partners? Why do we fall in love? What is the role played by each partner within a couple? How do we behave with our children? How can our children grow up to become well-balanced adults? ....And what is it that makes sex so important? These are some of the simple, basic questions that the renowned family psychotherapist Robin Skynner and his former patient, the comedian John Cleese, have chosen to discuss in a series of lively conversations that address serious issues in a practical, humorous manner. Robin Skynner is a psychotherapist. John Cleese is an actor and comedian.
In Life and How to Survive It, the authors have given us more than 400 pages of lively, tonic humour. Their subject is the joy of living and the conditions required to enjoy life to the full. Proceeding by ever-larger concentric circles, the authors successively discuss happy families (brilliant!), companies that allow their employees to fulfil themselves, and finally countries where life is pleasurable. This is British humour at its best, brilliantlyand hilariouslyillustrated. British comic actor John Cleese is famous for the cult television series Fawlty Towers, which he co-authored and starred in.
