5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air in a confusing world.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 May 2019
If you are starting to feel heavy under the weight of current politics, the rapid churn of social media, mental health, trolling, fake news and just the general sense that everything is somehow getting more intense, read this book.

It's not about how to shut yourself off from society and live as a hermit. It's not a bunch of shallow hand-wringing about social media and "kids these days." It's not even a detox or retreat guide. How To Do Nothing is a careful, well-researched look at how we choose to engage with our world and with each other, so that we can find ways to restore nuance, context and a sense of belonging. To do this, Odell investigates everything from history and politics to literature, art, sociology, even bird watching.

Though this book is written in a slightly academic style and the reader may benefit from some knowledge of critical methods or modern philosophy, it's so honest that I believe it would resonate strongly with anyone. I have personally taken a lot from this book and have been thinking about it for weeks since I read it.
