Worth reading, but I have some reservations....,
This review is from: The Play Ethic: A Manifesto For a Different Way of Living (Paperback)I think this is a great book that demonstrates that the British work ethic is on its last legs. Play is without doubt the answer. However, as only about 15 per cent of all workers are employed in 'knowledge work' who is going to let us play as much as we should? We should never forget the omnipresence of big business and how it is forever creeping into our lives and commercialising what wasn't. Therefore a play manifesto is great for those who can get it on a regular basis, but for the vast majority are going to have to fight hard to get some of the action.

I believe that playful people can transfer their playfulness and creativity to all kinds of jobs, including the seemingly less playful ones. Of course, it also depends on the freedom one has in his/her job but through time, it's almost always possible to convience our managers of how it benefits their business and, thereby, increase our opportunities for play (in and out of work). The more we play, the more we get the chance to do it.
