If you are uncomfortable with the idea of having the callous assumptions by which our society is regulated passionately dissected and found to be false constructs it is probably best to think carefully before reading it as it could well disturb your day. Though you might be just the person who needs to read it.
If on the other hand you are in some way dissatisfied and have discovered that the promises of a career, if your employment can be graced with that term, have been broken, buy with confidence. The contributors all have powerful thoughts about what has gone wrong in society generally and in some cases with their own lives. They go on to explain how they have sought to regain, not without difficulty, personal independence.
Great value and a cracking read I finished it in two sessions.
It holds up a light to the inevitable negative backwash of modern Capitalism without being overtly political or proselytising; and while it contains genuine wit and wisdom, bubbling beneath the humour there is more than a hint that modern society has got things hopelessly wrong. It is not hard to find evidence of this wrongness all around us: just watch the news!
While the book is clearly the product of more than one author, it is none the worse for that. Here you will find essays, poems and cartoons. Here you will find tactile tendrils of humanity, pushing through the dark loam of consciousness, searching for some much needed light.
If you are looking for a less-travelled path through the maze of this life you would do well to read 'Idling Is For Everyone' and decide for yourself if that journey is worth its weight in beer bottles.

I can't say I agree with everything in this book but it's a good introduction to idling. I'd follow it with 'How to be idle' by Tom Hodgkinson.Published on 14 Feb. 2014 by JWT
It was difficult to put down this book and I had to keep reading bits out to friends. It certainly makes you think!Published on 26 April 2013 by Sockie girl
