Explores and appreciates the small pleasures found in everyday life. So often we exhaust ourselves and the planet in a search for very large pleasures, while all around us lies a wealth of small pleasures, which if only we paid more attention could bring us solace and joy at little cost and effort. This is a book to guide us to the best of life's small pleasures: the distinctive delight of holding a child's hand, having a warm bath or the joy of the evening sky.

It is an intriguing, evocative mix of small pleasures to heighten the senses and return us to the world with new-found excitement and enthusiasm. Small pleasures are points of access to the great themes of our lives. Every chapter puts one such moment of enjoyment under a magnifying glass to find out what's really going on and why it touches, moves and makes us smile.

Praise for Small Pleasures'Small Pleasures is a book I read before bed and it helps cultivate appreciation and a generally happier life in noticing the little things. I would recommend it to all.''Such a lovely and unusual book summing up in a simple and unpretentious way the joys of things like driving late at night, a beloved's wrist, swimming in the sea... A book to dip into and delight in.'
