Tasmanian Robert Dessaix’s new book The Pleasures of Leisure (Penguin) is a celebration of doing nothing. It’s also about the joys of reading, travelling, walking without purpose, socialising without networking, and taking siestas.
Dessaix wants us to reclaim our right to “rest well”.
If you need a nudge to make more time for free time, get stuck in with moreish chapters including “loafing”, “doing nothing”, “nesting” and “play”.
We've got a few copies to give away; enter here to be in the running.
