Leisure Time. Leave it to us to turn our leisure time into a massive industry. We get all gussied-up in our high-tech, ultralight, sweat-wicking, satellite-uplinked, Gore-Tex (TM) socks and after... More > that, things get silly. I tell you, it's all utter hubris. You'd think we didn't enjoy our careers, the way we lunge for our toys on our days off.

But maybe you're like that? Maybe you're doing research for a book on the subject. Too late. Here's the book. But it's all utter hubris.< Less
