Reviews

'This is a must-have text for any students or lecturers grappling with the changes that have happened to the business of leisure in the last twenty years. Professor Roberts writes clearly and precisely on leisure from sport to events via the media and the internet. This is a comprehensive guide to leisure and its importance in our lives.' - Karl Spracklen, Leeds Beckett University, UK 'It is an exceptionally brilliant disposition and examination of the progressive commercialization of leisure provision. This book is everyone's business, the leisure of everyone and everywhere.' -Ishwar Modi, President of the Research Committee on Sociology of Leisure, International Sociological Association.
