Thelwell's Book of Leisure by Norman Thelwell is a 80-page cloth-bound hardcover published by E.P. Dutton & Co., Inc., first published in 1962, this copy published in 1969. The dust jacket has chips, tears and wear to the edges. Inside, the pages are clean and the binding is tight.
"The enjoyment of life," says Thelwell, "is an attitude of mind," and as his wonderfully humorous Book of Leisure demonstrates, the pursuit of relaxation requires the utmost of energy. If the head of a sports equipment company practices golf shots in his office, he may well be asked, "Don't you ever relax, J.B.?" And for the child on the bucking horse, the definition of enjoyment is as much up in the air as is the child.Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 69-17224
