The early bird may get the worm, but late sleepers live longer. Sounds too good to be true? Not according to The Joy of Laziness. The authors — one a health scientist and the other a medical doctor — explain why... too much exercise can make you sick, being relaxed and even-tempered makes you smarter, sun and heat are the fountains of youth, and 'doing nothing' actually does a whole lot good. Based on scientific research called Metabolic Theory, The Joy of Laziness reveals why the speed at which we live affects our energy and longevity. This book could be revolutionary for anyone who wants to stay healthy, be happy and live longer.
