Book Description Black Inc, 2015. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 3. Considered 'the Voltaire of his time', Bertrand Russell was a fearless iconoclast who stood unbowed before political and religious leaders; his disdain for conventional thinking and accepted beliefs set him apart from his academic peers and at odds with the authorities throughout his long and storied life. In his celebrated essay, In Praise of Idleness, Russell champions the seemingly incongruous notion that realising our full potential ? and thus enjoying the greatest possible success and happiness ? is not accomplished by working harder or smarter, but through harnessing the extraordinary power of idleness. Russell's penetrating insights and exquisite turns of phrase feel as fresh and relevant today as when they were first written. Arguing that we can achieve far more by doing far less, and that traditional wealth accumulation is a form of cultural and moral poverty, Russell demands greater depth from our age of abundant creativity and heralds the next wave of enlightened entrepreneurs. Replete with a new introduction and afterword, and interspersed with comic illustrations, informative notes plus a curated selection of Russell's best quotes from many of his acclaimed works, this unique edition of In Praise Of Idleness is given new life by New York Times best-selling author and internationally acclaimed humourist, Bradley Trevor Greive. 'Most people would die sooner than think.'  Bertrand Russell 'The brilliant wit of BTG and the timeless wisdom of Russell ? put that in your pipe and smoke it!'  Richard Morecroft ? Australian broadcaster, artist and author 'Intriguing and highly entertaining ? BTG has really gone to town!'  Tony Simpson ? Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation 'BTG's talent is as big as his heart ? the perfect tour guide for one of history's great humanists and most remarkable minds.' Adam Zwar ? Creator of Wilfred, Lowdown and Agony Aunts 'BTG's wit and charisma shine from his latest contribution of literary genius. This exquisitely original presentation of Russell's essay, In Praise of Idleness, is a delight to read and will enhance your creative thinking ten-fold.'  Lisa Messenger ? Founder & editor-in-chief, Collective Hub. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # MM-40032854
