What You'll Learn:
Can you remember the last time you had fun—real, true fun that revitalized you, that caused you to lose track of time and shed that fretting self-consciousness? Many see fun as a frilly nicety or frivolity, but award-winning journalist Catherine Price argues that fun is foundational to life and to recovering that feeling of being alive. Dubbed “the Marie Kondo for brains,” Price writes around themes of coming alive and becoming aware of the obstacles thereto. Building on her previous best-seller How to Break Up with Your Phone, she explores why we often struggle with that “dead-inside feeling” of ennui, how modern culture encourages that feeling, and how rediscovering the power of fun can counteract the modern malaise.
