9780099565949: Stop What You're Doing And Read This!

In any 24 hours there might be sleeping, eating, kids, parents, friends, lovers, work, school, travel, deadlines, emails, phone calls, Facebook, Twitter, the news, the TV, Playstation, music, movies, sport, responsibilities, passions, desires, dreams.

Why should you stop what you're doing and read a book?

People have always needed stories. We need literature - novels, poetry - because we need to make sense of our lives, test our depths, understand our joys and discover what humans are capable of. Great books can provide companionship when we are lonely or peacefulness in the midst of an overcrowded daily life. Reading provides a unique kind of pleasure and no-one should live without it.

In the ten essays in this book some of our finest authors and passionate advocates from the worlds of science, publishing, technology and social enterprise tell us about the experience of reading, why access to books should never be taken forgranted, how reading transforms our brains, and how literature can save lives. In any 24 hours there are so many demands on your time and attention - make books one of them.

Carmen Callil Tim Parks

Nicholas Carr Michael Rosen

Jane Davis Zadie Smith

Mark Haddon Jeanette Winterson

Blake Morrison Dr Maryanne Wolf & Dr Mirit Barzillai

Recensione:

"A strong argument for making "reading more" one of your new Year's Resolutions" ( Metro)

"Not having enough time to read is a common complaint. But as this collection of essays by ten committed bibliophiles attempts to show, reading should be an activity as regular as brushing your teeth" (Emma Hagestadt Independent)

"Ebullient... Subtle... Inspiring and impassioned... This advocacy for intense reading is punchy and sharp" (James Urquhart Financial Times)

"A delightful collection of essays from luminaries of the book world... Some are personal, some political, but all are passionate" ( Good Housekeeping)

Descrizione del libro:

A mission statement about the transformative power of reading; about the way it inspires us, the tangible impact it can have on our wellbeing, the importance it holds for us now and will continue to hold in the future.
