Product description


'George Myerson has come up not with momentous revelations but small moments of joy' Harry Eyres, Financial Times.

'This book gives delightfully fresh perceptions of where happiness can be found' Professor Clare Brant, KCL.

'This is more than a book, it is a celebration, a bouquet, an energizing holiday' Dr Phyllis Tickle.

'Bursting with feel-good factor' The Lady (5 stars).

'It seems a pity that we should need reminding of these pleasures; this charming book does so admirably.' Times Literary Supplement.

About the Author

George Myerson has written a number of books on ancient and contemporary culture, modern thought, and the philosophy of everyday life. He holds a PhD in English from Cambridge and was a Lecturer and Reader at King's College London.
