The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking


We are always on the lookout for people, books and sites that give an honest view of what it takes to make or do or be something. So, naturally, we were intrigued by Antidote. The book is Oliver Burkeman’s exploration of various kinds of  ”inspirational, success-oriented thinking” and new research that posits that “positive thinking” might not be as useful as we thought. It lead him to a radical take on happiness and success: the power of negative thinking, in which we learn to “bathe in insecurity, uncertainty and failure.”
