Description: Americans work longer than they did 20 years ago and eat more vegetables, but as Barbara Holland points out in Endangered Pleasures, why live to be 100 if it's going to feel like 200? According to Holland, bare feet, gardening, dawdling over the morning paper, and idle summer vacations are more fun than shopping malls and cable television, and certainly more fun than the American pastime of working too much. Her remedy? Rebel -- oversleep, and when you're ready; get up and eat bacon, drink coffee, and revel in a guilt-free existence Don't just stop and smell the flowers, call in sick and lie down among them -- preferably with a friend, a bottle of wine, and a handful of strawberries. A delightful reminder that rest and relaxation are necessary for well-being, Endangered Pleasures 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.
