The Importance of Living is a wry, witty antidote to the dizzying pace of the modern

world. Lin Yutang's prescription is the classic Chinese philosophy of life: Revere

inaction as much as action, invoke humor to maintain a healthy attitude, and never forget

that there will always be plenty of fools around who are willing-indeed, eager-to be

busy, to make themselves useful, and to exercise power while you bask in the simple joy

of existence.At a time when we're overwhelmed with wake-up calls, here is a refreshing,

playful reminder to savor life's simple pleasures.
