Japan’s bestselling classic about what really matters in life
The streets of Tokyo swarm below fifteen year-old Coper as he gazes out into the city of his childhood. Struck by the thought of the many, many people whose lives play out alongside his own under the rooftops of the rainy sky before him, the question of his place within this world suddenly confronts him and he turns to his uncle for guidance.
In a heart-warming series of life lessons from the old to the young, Coper and his uncle navigate the vast elements that make up a fulfilled, happy life: from relationships and courage to bullying and grief. With the help of his uncle, Coper embarks on a journey of philosophical discovery and personal growth as he figures out what it really means to live well.
A phenomenal bestseller that has captured the hearts of millions, How Do You Live? is a unique guide to living a good life.
