Review

Imagine our joy when Vintage announced that it is publishing a collection of easily digestible books from the world's most celebrated writers on the experiences that make us human... They look good and read well. That's win/win in our book. Stylist Teach us to Sit Still made me laugh; it made me cry; and it made me seriously think about taking up Vispassana meditation -- Will Self The Times
