Napism: for those who take their naps "religiously", those who get teased about taking naps, AND those who like to tease others about taking naps . . .
The wisdom of Napfucious and N'apseop's Fables . . . a Napa Sutra (list of napping styles) . . . NapFu . . . clues to identifying a Napist in your family . . . and more!
Note: this is both a book and a website, each with material suited to the medium. For example, the website has FREE downloadable screensavers, a video of an acoustical guitar version of The Napistic Blues, and more.
Sleep: the final frontier. These are the thoughts of the Nap Masters, their continuing mission: to explore strange new dreamworlds; to seek out new nap places, positions, and styles; to boldly nap when and where no one has napped before . . .
Mik Hetu lives on a little old Swedish sailboat he completely rebuilt himself, and yes, he does take a nap nearly every day, even if it's only a Practice Nap. He's very good at it, too ("Hell, I've been napping ever since I was a baby!")
Cayo Hueso -
It’s a little
nutty and it makes you grin.
This book reminds
me of one of our favorite wines - the flavor is a little nutty and it makes you
grin. And, it's not altogether unsophisticated! We read this a couple of weeks
ago and the humor keeps resurfacing (usually in the afternoon, around naptime),
so we thought maybe we should give the author a nod for his work. (A
"nod" - get it?) Anyways, we saw ourselves on many of the pages, so
the author does a fine job of finding the humor in everyday life. We're having
fun with this book weeks after we read it, so we recommend it highly.
This one took me
by surprise--delightful surprise. Sure, sleeping, napping are universal
activities (thank you Mr. Freud and Mr. Shakespeare), but how often do you see
a flat-out celebration, a reveling in a simple nap? Mr. Hetu must have a strong
line of cats in his family tree to loll so luxuriantly. The range of ripped off
sources, from authors to aphorisms to world religion, shows a mind as various
as a midday dream. There are few pleasures I've encountered greater than that
of a nap on a summer afternoon with a Cubs game on the radio and a lawn mower
running next door, but this comes very close.
Easily worth it .
. . funny!
A chuckle a minute. This is the kind of book you can
sit down and read front to back, or just flip through it and laugh as you go.
Love it! I think I'm going to take the Napa Sutra as a personal challenge :-)
