About the Book
Ruslana was the face of a Nina Ricci perfume. With her striking features, she took the fashion world by storm and quickly became the toast of the glitterati. But who was she really, and why did she look so unhappy? No one would know until, one day, they discovered that she was just another lost and lonely girl.With Ruslana's tragic world as the centrepiece of this motivational masterclass, Amit Dasgupta explores why we do what we do. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of sources- John Berger, Viktor Frankl, Akira Kurosawa, Zen Buddhism and many others-he takes the reader on an inspirational journey, unravelling the mystery behind the questions that haunt us: why am I unhappy, why do I fail, will I ever matter? 'A thoughtful book by a thoughtful man on some of the important ethical issues of our time' -Sudhir Kakar
