Importance of Living

Author(s): L. I. N. YUTANG

Mind, Body, Spirit

The timeless bestseller on the noble art of leaving things undone. The Importance of Living is a wry, witty antidote to the dizzying pace of the modern world. Lin Yutang's prescription is a classic Chinese philosophy of life: Revere inaction as much as action, invoke humor to maintain a healthy attitude, and never forget that there will always be plenty of fools around who are willing - indeed, eager - to be busy, to make themselves useful, and to exercise power while you bask in the simple joy of existence. At a time when we're overwhelmed with wake-up calls, here is a refreshing, playful reminder to savor life's simple pleasures. AUTHOR: Lin Yutang was born in 1895 to a mission family and became one of the best-known Chinese scholars and writers. SELLING POINTS: * A timeless classic, that has changed the lives of millions * Brand new design, as part of Prelude Psychology Classics series
