    What a delightfully, indolent read! Here are all the reasons why being idle is good for our souls. Snippets of information about the best idlers from times past to current days, and lovely quotes, about the benefits of 'being idle,' from ALL sorts of people. I loved it, I liked the style it was written in, short paragraphs and short two page dialogues. I had many a chuckle as I read.

    The only way to live :) The message deserves at least 4 stars but there just isn't enough in the book to give it more than 3. Still though, it was a short fun read and I enjoyed reading about the various idle fellows through history and their philosophies on life.

    "Please -- for the sake of human civilization -- don't do anything. Be idle. Be as idle as you can."

    A friend who knows my penchant for humorous quotes gave me this. It's more than a book of quotations, however; it is something of a manifesto for loafers, summoning all the great rallying cries (oh dear, that's not what I mean we idlers are too lazy to rally). There are middlingly long passages (but nothing too taxing, of course) that denigrate busy-ness or sing the praises of la dolce fa niente. It's a little volume, light in the hands. Perfect for drifting off to sleep to.

    This book has a lot of great quotes to help you release resistance from the work-a-day world. It is important to remember that in our crazy 24/7 go-go lifestyle, that SLOW IS THE NEW FAST.So, just slow down and enjoy life.Grab a good book and just leisurely pass the hours. You are an infinite being - you have forever.

    Reads like a college essay. He makes his point, backs it up with a bunch of quotes and moves to his next point. Yawn.

    Very interesting and amusing.

    Let's cuddle and be idle.

    A few good quotes here and there though generally not memorable. A true idler wouldn't read this book or bother finishing it.
