A delightful collection of essays whcih makes you rethink your current habits to see if you can't include a few more endangered pleasures in your day. One caveat - the cover is slightly misleading in that there is nothing about bacon or martinis, but perhaps a sequel will cover those.

Boring and self-possessing. Thank the good Lord I didn't have to buy this book.

Delightful. I enjoyed the author's style, her take on pleasures, and the reminder to take the time to slow down and enjoy the ones within our reach. Highly recommended.
