The first book to demonstrate that napping is a noble pursuit. Sleep-deprived parents, slacker students, recumbently inclined retirees, and all other lovers of naps rejoice!
Jennifer Eyre White's The Practical Napper: Tips, Facts, and Quotes for the Avidly Recumbent is the perfect bedside (or couchside) read for the recumbently inclined. It's the first book to show that napping is, in many ways, a noble pursuit: It's good for you, it's good for the environment, and it's good for world peace. Consider the following while you're catching your next 40 winks:
* Napping is good for the environment. When you're napping, you're not:
a) Burning fossil fuels
b) Procreating, thus increasing the pitter-patter of little carbon footprints
c) Engaging in slash-and-burn agriculture.
* Napping during sex is sometimes perceived as a lack of interest. Be careful with that.
* Advice for parents with newborns: nap when the baby naps. Unless, of course, you have other kids, in which case you'll need to tie them up in the back yard first.

"My motto has always been, 'More napping, less slapping!' This funny and informative book takes us ever closer to that dream." --Jack Handey, author of Deep Thoughts
