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.
In keeping with exploring the central theme of each chapter, relevant and contemporary case studies and exemplars have been included to allow students to engage with the material. Students will like these as will tutors as they can be used as a focus for discussion. Overall this book does achieve its aims, however this is not an introductory textbook that students will pick up and read through in the one go. This is a thought provoking book that students will return to in later years of their course and it will be used to stimulate ideas for project and dissertation work.
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.
