  1. The Pleasures of Leisure - Book Free Shipping

    In today's crazily busy world the importance of making time for leisure is more vital than ever. Yet so many of us lack a talent for it. We are working longer hours, consuming more than ever before; technology erodes the work-life balance further; increasingly, people feel that only work gives existence meaning. In a world where time is money, what is the value of walking without purpose, socialising without networking, nesting when we could be on our laptops? Robert Dessaix shows, in this thoughtful and witty book, how taking leisure seriously gives us back our freedom - to enjoy life, to revel in it, in fact; to deepen our sense of who we are as human beings. He explains how we can reclaim our right to 'rest well', and to loaf, groom, nest and play, as he looks at leisure from many angles- reading, walking, travelling, learning languages, taking siestas and simply doing nothing. The result is a terrifically lively and engaging conversation that reminds us that at leisure we are at our most intensely and pleasurably human.

The result is a terrifically lively and engaging conversation that reminds us that at leisure we are at our most intensely and pleasurably human. Review by Ben Hunter Are you, like me, genuinely exhausted by life? Do the events we work towards - weekend escapes, family reunions, the away game on Saturday - leave you even more tired than when you left the office in the first place? We're desperate to fill our time with these activities, but seldom do we stop and ask what we gain, if anything, from them. The much celebrated cultural thinker and essayist, Robert Dessiax, has set his sights on the lost art of leisure; lost in plain sight though it may be. Taking a casual stroll from the Franklin to the Ganges, and across thousands of years of Western and Eastern thought, he teases apart leisurely pursuits in all their incarnations, and imbues this work with liberal helpings of his well-seasoned wit. The result is a particularly thoughtful book that is something of a holiday in its
