9780091906221: The Idler 37: Childish Things (Issue 37)

This new issue of "The Idler" explores childhood and wonders whether today's kids are suffering from too much education, too many activities and too much interfering. Childish Things features Bertrand Russell's essay on education and freedom, an attack on professionalism, a visit to Summerhill School, where lessons are optional, and a guide to childcare for the lazy by editor Tom Hodgkinson. There's an interview with Michael Palin, a man who has gone with the flow to great acclaim. You'll also find Nicholas Lezard on Samuel Beckett, John Michel on William Cobbett, new short stories, and biting satire. All this as well as tips for living the good life and full colour illustrations and photography throughout.

Review:

"Britain's coolest magazine" -- Alex James, Blur "Uniquely engaging... devoted to idleness in all its forms... surprisingly energetic in its sagacious coverage of trends and trendiness... Packed with ideas" * Time Out * "The thinking person's Loaded" * Select * "Full of good things... genuinely radical, irreverent and iconoclastic" -- the late Rt Hon Alan Clark "I'd read it even if I didn't write for it" -- Louis Theroux
