    i couldn t put my finger on why i didn t think this book was as great as de botton s other books but then i realized it s because of 2 reasons 1 the focus is very euro and christian centric obvo, de botton is writing about what he knows euro intelligentsia , but perhaps a book about travelling should be about things outside your sphere of knowledge e.g., why is it so exotic for french speaking de botton to go to the south of france why go to a postcolonial barbados resort and consider th i couldn t put my finger on why i didn t think this book was as great as de botton s other books but then i realized it s because of 2 reasons 1 the focus is very euro and christian centric obvo, de botton is writing about what he knows euro intelligentsia , but perhaps a book about travelling should be about things outside your sphere of knowledge e.g., why is it so exotic for french speaking de botton to go to the south of france why go to a postcolonial barbados resort and consider that such a huge jump i wish de botton had taken some non Euro history art lit classes whilst at Cambridge 2 de botton seems to be a bit of a dandy traveller when he travels, he goes to resorts or to friend s houses in the countryside where he gets treated to chocolate donut things in the morning i can t imagine that he would ever, e.g., take a shit into a hole on a moving train or off the side of a boat or sleep in a tent in the middle of nowhere he seems to put a lot of stock in the availability of chocolate, pastries, various other desserts i imagine he wouldn t be able to rough it or go to places where chocolate desserts are not plentiful.i ve actually written fan mail to de botton and had have a huge crush on him, but to be completely honest, i wanted a littlefrom this book

    In The Art of Travel, Alaine de Botton succeeds in the difficult task of opening the readers eyes to the many perceptual enhancements that travel can provide It is not a travelogue of wild times in exotic countries, nor an informative list of places one can go The Art of Travel is abstract, and focuses on concepts relating to the inner self and individual psychology the internal elements that affect, and are affected by, travel Through avenues such as poetry, writings from some of histories In The Art of Travel, Alaine de Botton succeeds in the difficult task of opening the readers eyes to the many perceptual enhancements that travel can provide It is not a travelogue of wild times in exotic countries, nor an informative list of places one can go The Art of Travel is abstract, and focuses on concepts relating to the inner self and individual psychology the internal elements that affect, and are affected by, travel Through avenues such as poetry, writings from some of histories great travel philosophers, artwork, writings from scenic painters, fetching photographs, and through his own personalized experiences and intellectual insights, de Botton provides the reader with a greater understanding and appreciation of travel new paradigms that can result invisceral and illuminating travel experiences.De botton sees symbolism and connections in what may originally seem mundane Here, in his chapter on anticipation, he writes of the riding of an airplaneThere is psychological pleasure in this takeoff, too, for the swiftness of the plane s ascent is an exemplary symbol of transformation The display of power can inspire us to imagine analogous, decisive shifts in our own lives, to imagine that we, too, might one day surge above much that now looms over us What we find exotic abroad may be what we hunger for in vain at home.My favorite chapter was On the Sublime It inspires the reader to reach for the beautiful in life, and it helped me realize some of the inner resources that one can develop, and the outer resources that can be recognized, when in new atmospheres Reading that chapter was like a spiritual awakening something akin to the transcending experience one feels when looking at slews of massive mountaintops or stretches of distant, barren deserts I would have given The Art of Travel four stars had it not been for de Botton losing himself and me, the reader in the chapter,On Eye Opening ArtAt first, he provides sound, interesting, and useful philosophies on art But the writing becomes too involved, becoming dry, pedantic, and completely unrelated to travel For this short, but unforgivable period of time, de Botton s sense of wonder, curiosity, and appreciation for beauty are absent, causing the book to momentarily lose its distinguished charm.Overall, de Botton s writing is excellent Smooth, flowing, poignant, and articulate, he is a pleasure to read He is most insightfully expressive with regard to perspectives and perceptions, which, lucky for the reader, penetrate most portions of the novel This is appropriate, because the travel experience itself is subjective While two people may experience the same event at the same place and time, their perceptions and outtake will never be exactly the same Therefore, at bottom, travel has to do with what goes on in the individual those subjective inner workings that de Botton happens to articulate so well According to de Botton, while the splendors of various sights and cultures can help aid the kind of growth the traveler may desire, one need not leave his bedroom in order to gain mind expansion and life changing insights In that sense, The Art of Travel is not just a book about travel, but a book about seeing things in newer,enlightening ways a book about how to find and appreciate beauty, and through these processes, a book about enriching our life experience.For a full travel reading spectrum, I recommend this, along with Bill Bryson s Neither Here nor There Travels in Europe, which is a lighter, funnier, and less intellectualized travel read

    As with all of De Botton s books, this one is really a series of tightly crafted essays, each of which could stand on its own I think the key messages of the book are well captured in the very first chapter Upon travelling to Barbados, de Botton wakes up the next morning and heads for the beach, then observes A momentous but until then overlooked fact was making itself apparent I had inadvertently brought myself with me to the island As my wife occasionally remarks to me during our trave As with all of De Botton s books, this one is really a series of tightly crafted essays, each of which could stand on its own I think the key messages of the book are well captured in the very first chapter Upon travelling to Barbados, de Botton wakes up the next morning and heads for the beach, then observes A momentous but until then overlooked fact was making itself apparent I had inadvertently brought myself with me to the island As my wife occasionally remarks to me during our travels, in yet another rendering of the same insight Wherever you go, there you are We are sad at home and blame the weather or the ugliness of the buildings, but on the tropical island we learn that the state of the skies and the appearance of our dwellings can never on their own either underwrite our joy or condemn us to misery This explains why people are happy even in Winnipeg and unhappy even in Tahiti.These are probably good things to keep in mind when setting out on the road The external voyage only has an impact if accompanied by an internal one.De Botton has a wonderful ability to weave in all kinds of unexpected references to artists and writers, such as Charles Baudelaire and Edward Hopper I don t know much about either of them, but I m still impressed with the author s ability to casually tie together a 19th century French poet with a taste for opium and a 20th century American artist with a taste for painting Steak n Shakes restaurants and Mobil gas stations You can appreciate this book quite nicely even while sitting on the couch at home, but I happened to read it while travelling in Honduras Reading this book while on the road is a bit like having a guide by your side who, instead of telling you what you re looking at, pokes you regularly in the ribs and tells you to open your eyes and see

    I read this book Then I thought about it Then I went back and read it again, less thoroughly, with a pen in hand looking to further unpack and appreciate the ideas and self reflections they provoked in me It has taken me a long time to get around to declaring this book finished enough for me to write a review.The structure of this book is deceptively simple to summarize each chapter is a juxtaposition of de Botton s travel accounts with brief historical essays describing a famous author, t I read this book Then I thought about it Then I went back and read it again, less thoroughly, with a pen in hand looking to further unpack and appreciate the ideas and self reflections they provoked in me It has taken me a long time to get around to declaring this book finished enough for me to write a review.The structure of this book is deceptively simple to summarize each chapter is a juxtaposition of de Botton s travel accounts with brief historical essays describing a famous author, thinker, or artist and their experience of travel and sense of place Both sides of this juxtaposition were exquisitely crafted Alain de Botton s narratives are full of gentle humor and thoughtfully expressed reflections The brief but fascinating accounts of to name just a few Flaubert s impatience with the bourgeois and yearning for the exotic, van Gogh s fervent desire to express his vision of Provence, and Alexander von Humboldt s remarkable energy for discovery are the reading equivalent of a delightful tasting menu from some of the world s most talented chefs Each would have been incomplete without the other de Botton s highly self aware travel narratives might seem tiresome or pompous if they were not woven into these wide ranging explications of famous minds that have grappled with the same ideas Conversely, these separate accounts of artistic and historical figures are given common purpose by de Botton s commentary and contextualizing of selective sampling of their works Over the course of this little book, the author engages with a number of travel related ideas the unique flavor of anxiety that can only be produced by a guidebook, the poetry of the in between places like airports and service stations that exist only for the purpose of traveling, the truths we reveal about ourselves when we confront the realities of a foreign location and find it different than our expectations The thesis that resonated with me the most was the simplest the art of travel is really about consciously noticing Being receptive and aware is the first and necessary step to being able to articulate our questions and opinions, and from there to render our experiences lastingly meaningful This is, essentially, a personal goal for me this year, one that I am pursuing by approaching my readingthoughtfully and by reflectingfrequently on the small ways I can gain full awareness of how I am interacting with people and my environment So, although I am not embarking on any significant travels this year, this book nevertheless feels remarkably relevant to me personally Why be seduced by something as small as a front door in another country Why fall in love with a place because it has trams and its people seldom put curtains in their homes However absurd the intense reactions provoked by such small and mute foreign elements may seem, the pattern is at least familiar from our personal lives There too we may find ourselves anchoring emotions of love on the way a person butters his or her bread, or recoiling at his or her taste in shoes To condemn ourselves for these minute concerns is to ignore how rich in meaning these details can be Of course, this book does have a few flaws There are no women represented except as companions or objects of desire for men All forms of travel described are decidedly middle to upper class no hitchhiking or camping stories here One gets the impression that Bill Bryson and Alain de Botton wouldn t travel together very well The perspective is also limited only to Western thinkers and includes relatively few non European locations and most of those are former European colonies But these are forgivable in that the book is shaped by de Botton s personal background, interests, and experiences I merely mention it to warn those who would be put off by this kind of scope All in all, I highly recommend it to people interested in vignette style reflections on how we experience our immediate environment and what we can learn about ourselves by just payingattention to it, whether at home or abroad

    It s not you book, it s me In truth, if this wasn t such an easy read that I could complete it in a day, I wouldn t have bothered, and it would another to my, admittedly quite minimal, DNF shelf.As it was, it was a quick read, although it was a book I made no connection with I should have known better, really, especially after whole Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance failure Philosophy not something I read well Especially airy fairy philosophy, philosophy which treats a great love It s not you book, it s me In truth, if this wasn t such an easy read that I could complete it in a day, I wouldn t have bothered, and it would another to my, admittedly quite minimal, DNF shelf.As it was, it was a quick read, although it was a book I made no connection with I should have known better, really, especially after whole Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance failure Philosophy not something I read well Especially airy fairy philosophy, philosophy which treats a great love travel to an analysis to make it into something other than an opportunity to gain experiences and understanding Yes I am a simple man, with simple views So before I cut this review off short if you are interested in reading this book there are plenty of reviews by people who took an understanding from it, even enjoyed and benefited from reading it, so don t waste time on this reviewI will concede one of the aspects I enjoyed in this book, and this was worth a star, was reading about Gustave Flaubert whose book Flaubert in Egypt is hilarious and excellent in equal parts and the inspiring Alexander von Humboldt, which are interspersed within the text.Not for me 2 stars

    There s a certain self effacing charm about Alain de Botton s writing that creeps up on you and which eventually becomes irresistible Not one to shy away from big topics love, philosophy, status, travel, Proust he manages to bring you to fresh insights on each theme in a completely charming, highly readable fashion I ve also seen him a few times on a BBC series about different philosophers, and the same charm is evident in person He just seems like an altogether smart, together, sweet guy There s a certain self effacing charm about Alain de Botton s writing that creeps up on you and which eventually becomes irresistible Not one to shy away from big topics love, philosophy, status, travel, Proust he manages to bring you to fresh insights on each theme in a completely charming, highly readable fashion I ve also seen him a few times on a BBC series about different philosophers, and the same charm is evident in person He just seems like an altogether smart, together, sweet guy It appears that he is quite successful, despite the disparate and commercially unpromising topics he chooses to write about I hope that he is, because his seems to me to be a talent that deserves to be rewarded

    My favorite read of late is Alain de Botton s The Art of Travel I found this book enthralling I couldn t put it down Its insightful and erudite in a way that I haven t experienced since reading somewhat obscure texts for a rhetoric course in college The book uses authors and poets and painters that we all know and love to help us think about how to fully experience our world The book isn t really a travel tome and I m not sure that I learned all that much about particular destinations I My favorite read of late is Alain de Botton s The Art of Travel I found this book enthralling I couldn t put it down Its insightful and erudite in a way that I haven t experienced since reading somewhat obscure texts for a rhetoric course in college The book uses authors and poets and painters that we all know and love to help us think about how to fully experience our world The book isn t really a travel tome and I m not sure that I learned all that much about particular destinations Instead, each chapter offers tools for helping us to truly see and feel the spaces we inhabit as we walk in the world I found myself dog earing the corners of so many pages as he shared insights that resonated with my own experience of travel lately.One of the concepts that I believe will stay with me is the idea of word painting As you know, I love to share my experiences with you here on the blog Sometimes I struggle to decide how much detail to include, knowing that some of you will be interested in particular aspects of a story while others will not For me, the little things matter I m often fascinated by the day to day, somewhat mundane ways in which life is different from place to place Every once in a while I find myself involved in a moment of overwhelming beauty or profound peacefulness Those are moments I want to share with you The moments when I want to paint the picture for you through my words The idea is to not just capture the scene, but to fully describe the emotional connection we have to the moment in psychological terms even With Botton s help, I now havetools
