Q&A: Alain de Botton

From the art of travel to the architecture of happiness, author Alain de Botton's writings filter everyday life through a philosophical lens. Monocle Editor-in-Chief Tyler Brûlé met with Alain de Botton at his London home to talk about his latest book, The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work, a lucid and detailed exploration of the workplace - from office to factory, fishing boat to call centre.
