Small Pleasures

So often, we exhaust ourselves and the planet in a search for very large pleasures - while all around us lies a wealth of small pleasures, which - if only we paid more attention - could daily bring us solace and joy at little cost and effort. But we need some encouragement to focus our gaze.

This is a book to guide us to the best of life's small pleasures: everything from the distinctive delight of holding a child's hand to the enjoyment of disagreeing with someone, to the joy of the evening sky; an intriguing, evocative mix of small pleasures that will heighten our senses and return us to the world with new-found excitement and enthusiasm.

Chapters include:

  • Being Up Late at Night
  • A Book That Understands You
  • Pleasant Exhaustion After a Productive Day
  • Whispering in Bed in the Dark
  • Midnight Walks
  • Flirtation
  • Finding Your Feet Abroad
  • The Ideology of Small Pleasures
