How To Be Free (Tom Hodgkinson)

"Have you ever wondered why you bother to go to work? Why so much of consumer culture is crap? Whether there might be a better, freer, happier way to live our lives? If so, this book is for you. Following up his cult bestseller "How To Be Idle", Tom Hodgkinson takes us on an inspirational journey towards true freedom and happiness. Read "How To Be Free" and learn how to throw off the shackles of anxiety, bureaucracy, debt, governments, housework, moaning, pain, poverty, ugliness, war and waste, and much else besides."

I'd like to add down with popular music and down with anything found in an art museum that's labeled "post-modern".

Just checked and my local library has it in stock - off to borrow it now. Your input to my education is much appreciated.
