A kinder, gentler philosophy of success, A TED talk by Alain de Botton

Mr. de Botton is a remarkable genius in defining superficialities and making people feel really good again about not being part of the fashionable and cool crowd. The media and life around us make most of us feel just a bit short of the supposed ideal, at times anyway, but Alain de Botton argues convincingly why even the guy in the Ferrari deserves some compassion (rather than admiration or envy).
