9781574904222: Endangered Pleasures: In Defense of Naps, Bacon, Martinis, Profanity, and Other Indulgences

A delightfully funny and quirky look at the pleasures of modern life challenges the American work and productivity ethic, defends the good things on life (and the so-called ""bad""), and serves as a reminder that relaxation and leisure are necessary to our well-being.

Review:

First cigars and gin topped the list. Then red meat, Cadillacs, coffee with caffeine, and sleeping late all began to edge toward extinction. Barbara Holland makes an impassioned defense of life's little pleasures in a book that will entertain diehard sinners, comfort the secretly licentious, and encourage those who just need a little nudge to abandon jogging and no-fat salad dressing.

About the Author:

Barbara Holland's books include Secrets of the Cat, Hail to the Chief, and One's Company. Her articles have appeared in Arts and Entertainment, Country Journal, and Smithsonian. She lives in Bluemont, Virginia.
