From the book jacket:

When did you last feel exhilarated and light-hearted? When did you last feel fully alive? When did you last have fun?

In our always-on, tech-addicted lives, the pursuit of fun can feel like an indulgence. When it comes to our priorities, fun is often at the bottom of the list.

Award-winning science journalist Catherine Price argues that, far from being frivolous, fun is the key to living a more meaningful, fulfilling and happier life. If your prioritize fun, you will:

  • Be healthier, less stressed and have more energy.
  • Find community and a sense of purpose.
  • Stop languishing and start flourishing.
  • And best of all? You’ll enjoy yourself!

Ground-breaking, eye-opening and packed with useful advice, The Power of Fun won’t just change the way you think, it will bring you back to life.

‘A practical, evidence-backed argument that fun isn’t optional, but essential’ – Charles Duhigg

‘Inspirational, funny, research-packed and full of practical strategies, The Power of Fun is a game-changer’ – Arianna Huffington

At this meetup, we will discuss Price’s insights relating to fun as well as share our own. Love the book? Hate the book? No time to read the book? You’re all welcome.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
