From the founding editor of The Idler, the celebrated magazine
about the freedom and fine art of doing nothing, comes not simply a
book, but an antidote to our work-obsessed culture. In How to Be
Idle, Tom Hodgkinson presents his learned yet whimsical argument
for a new universal standard of living: being happy doing nothing.
He covers a whole spectrum of issues affecting the modern
idler--sleep, work, pleasure, relationships--while reflecting on
the writing of such famous apologists for it as Oscar Wilde, Robert
Louis Stevenson, and Nietzsche--all of whom have admitted to doing
their very best work in bed.
