We need self-help books like never before, and that is why The School of Life, in conjunction with Pan Macmillan, has established a new format for the self-help book. In the first and second series we examined some of the great issues of life – work, sex, money, emotional maturity, aging, adversity and solitude.
This new series build on the strengths of the first two, tackling some of the hardest issues of our lives in a way that is genuinely informative, helpful and consoling.
At a time when work and home life are becoming increasingly blurred, and modern technology brings the realm of the public into what used to be a personal and private space, Ed Hollis looks at what it means to make a home in today's world. Exploring the meaning of private and public space, the importance we place on physical objects and the demands we make of our home environment, How to Make a Home challenges us to re-imagine the concept of home and hearth.
