The Book of Idle Pleasures

by Edited by Dan Kieran and Tom Hodgkinson - £14.99  Ebury Press (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780091923327 | ISBN 10: 0091923328

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.
