The key to a life of pleasure, freedom and guilt-free lounging around is in your hands.
Drawing on history, poetry, philosophy and personal experience, 'How to be Idle' is a spirited and joyful defence of laziness and good living. Bearing witness are such diverse defenders of loafing as Dr Johnson, Byron, Coleridge, Bertrand Russell, Oscar Wilde, Nietzsche and John Lennon.
With advice, information and reflection on such important matters as lying in, long lunches, the art of the nap and how to skive, 'How to be Idle' gives you all the inspiration you need to take it easy in a work-obsessed world.
