36. The Hedonism Handbook, Michael Flocker
What a delightful little bit of fluff this was. The central message, in case the title wasn't a giveaway, is this: Let go, enjoy life, relax. Here're some ways to do it.
Flocker takes a tongue in cheek look at various ways and reasons people have resorted to different vices, from sex to drugs to spending money to eating... and so on. Furthermore, he provides some excellent justifications for indulging in any or all of the above, depending on your preferences. Interestingly, he also suggests that moderation can be and is a vital part of a hedonist's lifestyle.
Definitely a cheerful little book, and anyone's bound to come away with a few more ideas of ways to have fun.Posted by Lisa at August 9, 2005 12:13 PM | 2005
