Overview


Few men have reached the very pinnacle of apathy quite like Homer Simpson. His epic inertia is an example to us all. Now, for the first time, Homer reveals the secrets behind his extraordinary ability to get absolutely nothing done. From tips on how to avoid working at work to Homer’s suitably slapdash design for his “Lazy House of the Future,” this ode to the joys of sloth shows a true American idle at his lazy best.

Also covering Homer’s lackadaisical take on classic art, his indispensable tips on lethargic eating, housework avoidance, and many more sluggish subjects, Homer Simpson’s Little Book of Laziness is a must-read for ne’er-do-wells everywhere.

Packed with inserts and special features, such as an eight-page pullout Sloth Man comic and a foldout “Anatomy of a Layabout” feature focusing on fellow lazybones Barney Gumble, Homer Simpson’s Little Book of Laziness is absolutely bursting with inactivity.

The premier installment of the Vault of Simpsonology collection, look out for more great titles in the series coming soon.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"There’s Socrates, Confucius & Plato, even Nietschze. And yet even the world’s most profound philosophers can’t hold a candle to the wisdom of the great Homer. Simpson, that is. A page or passage from this treatise on laziness will one day be carved in granite on the base of the giant, skyscraping sculpture we build in his honor."—Werd

“Looking for a good excuse to avoid work? May we wholeheartedly recommend this charming little book, which will provide you with lots of chuckles and sighs of admiration and recognition?”—Animation Magazine
