The idea of leisure time was to refresh and renew to have a life outside of work. Gini's main thesis in this book is that Americans aren't necessarily overworked, but we are defiantly under-rested. But market forces have largely been against this. Adam Smith said, "Consumption is the sole purpose of all production. We work more hours a week than anyone (even the Japanese, he repeatedly points out), but take far less vacation, not even the vacation we're due. And when we aren't working, we certainly aren't resting. He likens the need for leisure and relaxation with the concept of the Sabbath, a useful analogy he continues through the book.

In praise of leisure. Kitchener, ON: Herald Press. Redeeming the time: A Christian approach to work and leisure. The Sabbath-Cornerstone and capstone of Jewish life.

More than a book about women, 'In Praise of Older Women' is about war and changing landscapes, about war and the social relationships it harbors. Underneath it all, it is the story of a boy growing up amidst the company of older women. It is different from a proustian recollection but equally potent and beautiful.
