You are in a hotel in downtown Denver (or Darmstadt, or Dijon) on your own; you didn't realise that boredom had a taste. You don't want to go blind or to get arrested, so what can you do? "Hotel Hobbies" brings together the collective experience of conference connoisseurs and hotel veterans to create 50 blameless and absorbing ways to pass the time, using nothing but the items naturally found in any hotel room. There's something for everyone, from the inscrutable art of towel origami to the adrenalin whoosh of en-suite free-running. Buy it for the international executive in your life - even if that person is you.
