Life and How to Survive It

Life and How to Survive It

"Life and How To Survive It" is a self help psychology book written by therapist Robin Skynner and comedian John Cleese. The book is written in a question and answer form, with Cleese asking questions about relationships, and his therapist Skynner answering them.

It is the sequel to "Families and How To Survive Them".

The book aims to answer questions both psychologically and sociologically about why the world is the way it is and how this affects us as individuals. Insightful and often quite funny (usually due to Cleese's outspoken contributions), the narrative takes the reader on a journey into our hidden consciousness and tries to explain why, and how relationships do or do not work.

Interesting concepts such as the three parts of the human psyche (Ego, Super Ego, and Id) are well explained to anyone who has not studied psychology.
