In today's crazily busy world the importance of making time for leisure is as vital as ever. Yet so many of us lack a talent for it. We are working longer hours, consuming more than ever before and our reliance on technology is eroding the division between work and the rest of life. 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.
