--Alain de Botton, The Pleasures and Sorrow of Work "The most easy-to-follow-without-being-made-to-feel-inadequate parenting manifesto ever written. Hodgkinson is right on almost everything"
--The Sunday Times "Add liberal doses of music, jovial company and deep woods to play in--all central to idle, not to say Taoist, life--and you have a recipes for bright, happy people who with need of neither television nor shrink. Who could ask for more?"
--The Evening Standard "If you wait long enough, you will find a parenting book that endorses your style of mothering. Mine was just published ... the book that argues why laid-back parents raise healthier and happier kids. Appropriately titled, The Idle Parent is a refreshing change to most of the parenting books on the market."
--Beliefnet "Wise, funny, practical and personal, The Idle Parent puts the fun back into parenting."
