Reviews
A charming and accessible how-to guide to chilling out.-- "BuzzFeed"
Charming . . . This pleasant, effortless work will be perfect for any busybody.-- "Publishers Weekly"
I got a surprising amount of guidance. . . . It looks like a coffee table gift book, partly because of the lovely illustrations. . . but there are questions to answer and exercises to try.-- "The Boston Globe"
This compact book builds a case of why we should do nothing and how to get started. It has beautiful, soothing illustrations that make us feel calm and light. It also introduced me to the term 'JOMO' that stands for the joy of missing out (here to replace sad old FOMO). I have experienced JOMO multiple times and I'm glad to have a term for it.-- "Book Riot"
