Reviews

“Stebbins’ new book … provides timely insight to further the scholarship of leisure, the serious leisure perspective (SLP) and the concept of augmentative play. … Who should read this book? The book is good for scholars of the SLP. … the reading will be most meaningful for those who have a grasp of the interrelated concepts of leisure, play, flow, perceived freedom and of course, SLP.” (Steven Henle, Annals of Leisure Research, September, 2016)
