Book Synopsis



An international bestseller and TikTok sensation with more than 10 million copies sold worldwide, The Courage to Be Disliked is a transformative and practical guide to personal happiness and self-fulfillment.

Now you can unlock your full potential and free yourself from the shackles of past traumas and societal expectations to find true personal happiness. Based on the theories of renowned psychologist Alfred Adler, this book guides you through the principles of self-forgiveness, self-care, and mind decluttering in a straightforward, easy-to-digest style that's accessible to all.

The Courage to Be Disliked unfolds as a dialogue between a philosopher and a young man, who, over the course of five enriching conversations, realizes that each of us is in control of our life's direction, independent of past burdens and expectations of others.

Wise, empowering, and profoundly liberating, this book is a life-changing experience that shows you a path to lasting happiness and how to finally be the person you truly want to be. Millions are already benefiting from its teachings--and you can be next.



Review Quotes




"[The Courage to be Disliked guides] readers toward achieving happiness and lasting change... For those seeking a discourse that helps explain who they are in the world, Kishimi and Koga provide an illuminating conversation."-- "Library Journal"

"A nuanced discussion of a complex theory, with moments of real philosophical insight.... [It's] refreshing and useful to read a philosophy that goes against many contemporary orthodoxies. More than a century since Adler founded his school of psychology, there's still insight and novelty in his theories."-- "Quartzy"

"Adlerian psychology meets Stoic philosophy in Socratic dialogue. Compelling from front to back. Highly recommend."--Marc Andreessen, venture capitalist and founder of Andreessen Horowitz

"Marie Kondo, but for your brain."-- "Hello Giggles"



About the Author



Ichiro Kishimi was born in Kyoto, where he currently resides. He writes and lectures on Adlerian psychology and provides counseling for youths in psychiatric clinics as a certified counselor and consultant for the Japanese Society of Adlerian Psychology. He is the translator, into Japanese, of selected writings by Alfred Adler--The Science of Living and Problems of Neurosis--and he is the author of Introduction to Adlerian Psychology, in addition to numerous other books.

Fumitake Koga is an award-winning professional writer and author. He has released numerous bestselling works of business-related and general non-fiction. He encountered Adlerian psychology in his late twenties and was deeply affected by its conventional wisdom-defying ideas. Thereafter, Koga made numerous visits to Ichiro Kishimi in Kyoto, gleaned from him the essence of Adlerian psychology, and took down the notes for the classical "dialogue format" method of Greek philosophy that is used in this book.

Our daughter recently read this book and now has a much better attitude about how to audition well for orchestras. She isn't as nervous about auditioning like she used to be. She has finally realized that you cannot please everyone. This book has helped her to see that it's not healthy to be too concerned about what others think.
