“Brilliant. One of those rare books that forces you to ask what the hell you’re doing with your life.”
–George Monbiot, The Guardian**One of Forbes’ 13 Best Books for Summer 2017**

We’ve all heard the saying “seize the day.” But what does it really mean–and how can we use it to jumpstart our lives? In the age of distraction, carpe diem is more essential than ever, and yet many of us simply don’t employ it in our lives.

In this thought-provoking and empowering book, cultural writer Roman Krznaric unpacks the history, philosophy, and modern-day applications of “seizing the day” and delivers a rousing call to action for anyone who wants to improve their lives–or our world.

Carpe Diem is a far-ranging read, drawing on everything from the neuropsychology of regret to the anthropology of play, from medieval carnival rites to religious conceptions of the afterlife and early Japanese cinema. Offering food for thought as well as inspiring takeaways, the book examines not just the contributions of great thinkers throughout history, but also reveals insights from the lives of great seize-the-day practitioners including nightclub dancers, war photographers, bored housewives, and committed revolutionaries–offering a wide range of solutions to the daunting challenge of leading a meaningful life.
