The Arab Culture Center has recently released an Arabic translation of "The Courage to be Disliked," a book by Ichiro Kishimi and Fumitake Koga.

The book, translated by Mustapha Al Waruajily, revolves around human development, and how a person should act in his life, regardless of what people think of him.

To achieve success, a human being needs courage.

"Under a provocative title that contradicts with everything we have learned since our childhood, this valuable, easy-to-understand, deep book explains how we can unleash the power we have inside to become the person of our dreams, with no regard to others' opinion or admiration," the publisher writes in the introduction.

"Based on Alfred Adler's theories and philosophy on courage, the two authors created an exciting dialogue between a young man and a philosopher, during which the latter explains to his student how each one of us can decide the path of his life, without being hindered by past experiences, and others' expectations," the publisher added.

"It's a thinking method that liberates us from the depths, allows us to have the courage of change, and to ignore the restricting boundaries we and the people surrounding us create."
