"In a modern world where lives have become increasingly pressurised, we find ourselves short of that very valuable commodity - time. As a result, our relation ships and day-to-day interactions with others tend to be dictated by the clock. Perhaps we discover the importance of spending time with people, only when it is already too late. We may be left with regrets: of lost opportunities to be together, of not listening in a conversation, of time wasted in pursuit of some material or career goal." "For Wasting Time With People? Alice Leahy invited a diverse range of friends to help her address what has become one of the greatest challenges of life today: how to make time for others amidst all the pressures." "The result is an insightful and very honest selection of essays, poems, short stories and personal recollections, from a large cross-section of contemporary Ireland. Poets, playwrights, journalists and authors, as well as members of the judiciary, church, medical and political worlds, and people who are homeless: they are all here - helping to start a quiet revolution in Irish society that could change our quality of life for the better."--BOOK JACKET.
