Publisher Description

Are we spending more time at work than we would have done fifty years ago? Are we sleeping less? How has the internet affected the way we use our spare time?

This book delves into the unrivalled data collection and expertise of the Centre for Time Use Research to explore 55 years of change in our activities and behaviour and what it means for us today.
