"There are textbooks galore, but there aren’t many crafted as intelligently as this one. This book will change the way that students understand leisure. It will give them an easier entry to that place where difficult ideas fuse into something intelligible, where real understanding sits and the educated imagination is stirred."
- Tony Blackshaw, Sheffield Hallam University
Not enough material on the entertainment value of the current state of the sex industry.
A most useful and beneficial book. Great entry point to explore leisure studies.
This book provides an overview of leisure studies that is very useful to Occupational therapists who may have a limited, instrumental approach to the use of leisure in their practice. It opens up ideas that will enable them to be more client centered in their approach.
