Sloth: Ode to Disarray and Delay

Dale Burg, Author Red Rock Press $21.95 (128p) ISBN 978-0-9669573-2-7
""Most Americans are sloth-impaired,"" observes Dale Burg in her humorous and charmingly illustrated Sloth: Ode to Disarray & Delay, the fourth installment in the Sin Series from Red Rock Press. Burg, who has taught comedy writing at NYU and is the author of 16 books, declares the Official Sloth Breakfast to be eggs over easy (cooked by someone else), advises against any strenuous activity except for slow dancing and waxes philosophical about the benefits of doing tomorrow what one could do today. With a historical overview of sloth, proverbs and famous quotations, Burg convincingly shows why the best is always worth the wait. 70 color illus. ( May 15)
