Missing Out: In Praise of the Unlived Life Adam Phillips
2017-09-19

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night with deep regret over something you did, or did not do, years ago? How would things have turned out had you behaved differently? All you can do is try and go back to sleep and treat yourself with respect until you suddenly wake up in the middle of the night again and the cycle continues. Or. . . you could read this book. Adam Phillips articulates the great value of all experiences by examining the benefits of missed opportunities. We need the “what-could-have-been” as much as we need anything else. He explains their contribution to the greater whole and facilitates your next good night's sleep.
