Following similar volumes he produced in 2001 and 1992, Stebbins (sociology, U. of Calgary) takes stock of the current academic literature on serious literature. Distinct from casual leisure and project-based leisure, serious leisure involves the systematic pursuit of a hobby or other activity that is so interesting in itself that it often becomes a kind of second career.
