Surfing with Sartre

"A beautiful book, essentially a dialogue with Jean-Paul Sartre about work and play. He's arguing that working less and playing more, especially in the surf, is not only an okay choice but a moral one.

He makes a beautiful argument for why leisure and dedication to nature is a moral imperative at this time. It might sound like a stretch but he builds a case.

The book also gives you a good excuse to surf a little more."

—Jaimal Yogis,

author of Saltwater Buddha
