Life is Hard

Though Life Is Hard makes philosophy relatable, it doesn't make it facile. Sections on universal conditions such as illness, loneliness, and grief will remind readers that since time began, we've all been in this together and have a whole body of human thought to find meaning in the tough times. Setiya's own battle with chronic pain places him squarely in the middle of the struggle with the reader. Recommended by Kelly
