This informative and entertaining investigation of boredom--what it is and what it isn't, its uses and its dangers--spans more than 3,000 years of history and takes readers through fascinating neurological and psychological theories of emotion, as well as recent scientific investigations, to illustrate its role in our lives. Toohey shows that boredom is a universal emotion experienced by humans throughout history and he explains its place, and value, in today's world.--From publisher description."@en ;
