♦Description : “The book that illuminates the mystery of self-confidence.
Where does self-confidence come from? How does it work? What strengthens it? Is it weakening? Why are some people more confident than others? Is it a question of temperament? The fruit of a work on oneself? A look at the world? What relationship does self-confidence have with trust in others, with confidence in life itself?
Drawing on the great texts of philosophy and ancient wisdom, in the work of psychoanalyses and psychologists, but also in the experience of great athletes, artists or anonymous, Charles Pépin illuminates the mystery of trust in itself.”
