Description - The Book of Idle Pleasures by Dan Kieran

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.
