— On Assholes

Working Less Can Save the World

An excerpt from my new book at lithub, here, which begins this way:

“Not so long ago, in the dark days before the 40-hour workweek, the average person worked constantly, without time to completely rest, let alone laze around, get creative, and maybe take up surfing. Fortunately, history brought something of a revolution. …”

N.B., the chapter called “Society” (which isn’t excerpted) features the asshole surfer.
