Bittersweet is the uplifting and mind-shifting new book from author Susan Cain. Following on from her megaselling masterpiece QUIET, she hopes to express an understanding of bittersweetness by transforming loss and pain into growth and beauty.
Each chapter of Bittersweet helps navigate a different defining issue in life. From love to leave and authenticity and creativity. Using examples from music, cinema, parenting guides, her own life and academic research she shows readers the importance of understanding bittersweetness.
"This is a book for those that have felt a piercing joy at the beauty of the world; who react intensely to art and nature; and in a culture that celebrates toughness, who yearn for a wiser and more meaningful world. For bittersweetness is a source of our love stories, moonshots and masterpieces."
