The Importance of Being Lazy: In Praise of Play, Leisure, and Vacation By Al Gini
2003 | 176 Pages | ISBN: 0415938791 | PDF | 3 MB

Author draws on studies of Americans’ vacation habits to show why ‘doing nothing’ is a fundamental human necessity. Argues that as a culture whose mythology is steeped in the hard work and accomplishments of our pioneering forebearers, we know how to work hard but not how to play; and what we really need is some time off.
