Dear fellow playful Profs

I hope you are all on holiday, basking in the sun/garden/doing something else to restore you, and not slaving over a hot email.

Having been lucky enough to speak at both Playposia on my study of the use and value of play in HE I thought you might be interested in having a copy of my new book. It's completely free and I don't profit commercially in any way - that was part of the funding deal. Which is fine by me, as more than anything I want to be able to share what I have found.

When you have dusted the sand off your feet or equivalent, or if you are working through the summer and fancy a break, you can download the book from this link.

And if you have a read, let me know what you think.

All best wishes

Wow! What a wonderful resource. This is monumental. Epic. One for the ages. And so much fun!

I only wish it came out at the beginning of summer so I could have taken it to the beach with me. Well, I guess I will have shove some of this proper work to the side so I can play at learning more about play.

Thanks for sharing this with us. And congratulations one producing this critical play tome!

Congratulations Alison! The graphics and typesetting really beautify the book!
Of course, with this off the table, what will you do with yourself next?
Hope you have found some sunshine and wine time to reward yourself 😁
