Brief review: The book is based on Alfred Adler's theory of human psychology. Adler is considered to be one of the greatest in history in the area of human behavior, alongside Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. He suggests that we all have the power to change our lives from this moment onwards. His theory is based on teleology (the purpose) and not aetiology (the cause and effect). The book is written in a conversation mode between a philosopher, who advocates Adler's theory, and a youth who wants to question it. The arguments are brilliant. There were a lot of take-aways from me and I believe you too will have more clarity in life.
