Whatever Happened to the Good Life? or Assessing Your "RQ" (Recreation Quotient)


This book asks whatever happened to the good life? While answering this provocative question, you will find an opportunity to determine your own RQ or recreational quotient based on involvement (or lack of) in a broad spectrum of recreational pursuits. After seeing where you score personally, you can take the necessary steps - if you wish - to raise your RQ Why should this question concern you? It should because in modern society people are increasingly crowded together in heavily populated urban and suburban communities. This has created a serious problem. We now need to know how people can find happiness, satisfaction, and a high quality of life despite the increased tempo of living often amidst badly crowded conditions? Your leisure-time involvement is insightfully related here to society's development. North Americans have been accused of being afflicted with spectatoritis (i.e. spending too much of their free time watching others taking part in some form of activity, recreational or otherwise). Throughout history people in many societies have misused leisure after they have earned it. This misuse of free time has actually had much to do with the downfall of certain societies. This could well be the case with North American in the 21st. Finally, this book and test can help you to broaden your perspective on the whole question of leisure. Ths good life is still out there, but you will have to plan - oh so carefully - to achieve it. Good luck and good planning.
