This Riot Recommendation is sponsored by HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers and publisher of The Weekend Effect by Katrina Onstad.
Digging into the history, the positive psychology, and the cultural anthropology of the idea of a weekend, journalist Katrina Onstad, pushes back against our culture of all-work-no-fun, and follows the trail of people, companies and countries who are vigilantly protecting their weekends for joy, adventure, and most importantly, for meaning. Readers of The Happiness Project, All Joy and No Fun, and Thrive will find personal and business inspiration in this well-researched argument to save and savor the weekend, and as a result, save ourselves. A well-lived weekend, filled with face-to-face socializing, idleness, and nature, is the gateway to a well-lived life.
