Duration: 7 hours 28 minutes
The aptly titled sequel... to "Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow" which is also recorded by Assembled Stories and proved immensely popular.In this succeeding outburst of whimsy Jerome reflects on a variety of subjects such as 'the art of making up one's mind', 'the care and management of women' and 'the minding of other peoples business'. A childhood of poverty and being parent less from the age of fourteen ensured that Jerome was always in touch with his own humanity and beneath the humour there is the benevolent wisdom of the author - a shrewd but sympathetic observer of human nature and its folly.
