The Book of Idle Pleasures

by Edited by Dan Kieran and Tom Hodgkinson
£9.99   paperback  Ebury Press (2008)

The Book of Idle Pleasures by Edited by Dan Kieran and Tom Hodgkinson The Book of Idle Pleasures is a restorative gift book for the stressed out, tired and hassled. An antidote to our non-stop culture, it is a welcome compedium of timeless delights.
The book lists and reflects on 75 simple pastimes and proves that the best things in life really are free: lighting fires, skimming stones, catching falling leaves, whittling, staring out of the window, dreaming, doodling or taking a nap.
The Book of Idle Pleasures is a celebration of pleasure for its own sake in a world of consumer overload.
