Sociology: Work and Leisure Work Essay

Excerpt from Essay :



There is an idea of cognitive and valuation confusion in the book. The writer is a professor yet the book is not academic.

Recommending

There are many inconsistencies in the book yet it is something that gives a different opinion about the combination or working and leisure in the American context. Hence I will recommend this book to peers (Richard, 2008). However, there are a few things I will be telling about the books that they do not develop high expectations from the book. The book is conditionally recommended. The book offers a unique perspective on advantages of leisure time and the blessings of working less. The money we earn more is seldom spent on productive areas and normally falls prey to mere consumerism. People work more normally to be able to shop more. Besides that the people that I recommend the book will be told that the book does not offer a final solution how to reduce the working and increase leisure time (Zuylen, 2008). Thus they should carefully follow the flow of book so that they are able to themselves suggest a solution for their working-leisure life.
