Leisure and Human Development examines the link between human development and behavior in the context of leisure, which has been described as encompassing one third of people's time.

Developed around age-based periods of life, this book explores human development as it affects and is affected by leisure—what people do when they are relatively free to choose their activities. It discusses three themes: human development influences leisure behavior; leisure behaviors influence development; and leisure plays a role in moderating the effects of life events.
