In Praise of Idleness

Author(s): Bertrand;Greive Russell


New York Times bestselling author Bradley Trevor Greive (BTG) breathes fresh life into Bertrand Russell's classic work, In Praise of Idleness, with a new introduction, biographical afterword, historical notes, additional quotations and comic illustrations. In this revolutionary essay, Russell argues that we can achieve far more by doing far less, and that traditional wealth accumulation is a form of cultural
and moral poverty. Demanding greater depth from our age of abundant creativity, he heralds the next wave of curious and enlightened citizens. Encouraging readers to take back their lives and live more fully, Russell's penetrating insights and exquisite turns of phrase are as relevant today as
when they were first written. With the added wit and wisdom of BTG, this is an essential handbook for getting more out of life.
