The Courage To Be Disliked

Louie Giray


Originally written in Japanese by Ichiro Kishimi and Fumitake Koga, The Courage to Be Disliked is a book that talks about perennial life questions and the liberation of the mind. Incorporating concepts from Adlerian psychology, this is done through a Socratic dialogue in which the philosopher converses with the youth. Divided into five “conversations,” this book is filled with wise gems, in a non-complicated and very accessible manner, that can be utilized in personal and professional areas. This non-fiction book has sold over three million copies and has been translated into many languages. Because of its very relatable and universal values, it is becoming a modern classic. Many readers even describe the book as transformative and paradigm-shifting. This book is highly recommended to young people and professionals in the arena of counseling, teaching, and social work.
