How to Be Idle: A Loafer’s Manifesto

How to Be Idle: A Loafer’s Manifesto, by Tom Hodgkinson

Let’s get something out of the way—this is a dude’s book. In fact, it’s one of the more male books that I’ve read in a really long time. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth reading or that those of us who aren’t cis-gendered white British males can’t get something from it. Like the Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, this work is funny and cheeky, but it’s also deadly serious.

Our modern hustle culture sucks us dry and there’s got to be a better way to live. You might roll your eyes a bit, but it will make you think, too. And, I hope, it will inspire you to have a few lazy mornings, because they are absolutely delicious.
