If Life Is a Game, How Come I'm Not Having Fun?: A Guide to Life's Challengesby Paul Brenner
In this lively and enlightening book, Paul Brenner suggests that treating life's events and everyday activities as a game would lead to a more socially functional and effective society. Through compelling suggestions and dynamic anecdotes, he conceptualizes all our economic, political, social, and spiritual pursuits in terms of role-play, and demonstrates the contribution this perspective can make to the happiness of individuals and to the systemic welfare of an increasingly complex social order.
“Paul Brenner has written a very hopeful and compelling book that points to the power of play, which has been so undervalued in our culture.” Robert J. Landy, Professor, New York University, and author of Persona and Performance: The Meaning of Role in Drama, Therapy, and Everyday Life
