Many audiences, as well as critics, consider Ablyumov to be Ivan Goncharov’s most influential novel. In this book, a new term called “ablomism” is introduced. Ablomivism refers to people who have severely impaired performance and restlessness. These traits are the beginning of entering life with laziness. In this book, the author tells the story of a character who is lost in the vortex of bodybuilding and can not build his future.
If you are one of those people who are interested in having a quiet life without financial problems, timely travel, fun and complete health, but you do not make the slightest effort to fulfill these desires and you do not know why, read Ablyumov. If you ask, when is the best time to read Ablyumov? We say firmly, “Yesterday!”
Did he not know to think of Kadkhoda’s letter or to change his house? Or handle invoices. He was wandering in the flood of life’s troubles, and he remained asleep, rolling from side to side, and occasionally his sighs were heard, “Oh my God, the calamity that has begun is falling from all sides.”

Among the benefits of laziness, how can it be a book to overcome laziness ?! This book refers to the philosophy of work, leisure and leisure in life. Although this book is philosophical, it is fluent and understandable to all readers. In fact, the author did not simplify philosophy, but wrote philosophy in a deeper language without fear. In this book, the audience becomes more familiar with the reason for life, love and effort than before. Reading it makes the excuses we make to avoid trying automatically become meaningless in us and we can be more determined.
If you are one of those people who, because of a misunderstanding of what life is, prefer to ignore life and try less, this book is for you. Read it and get acquainted with a more comprehensible world so that you can try and move forward as you wish.
My hypothesis is very simple. Even if we love our work and are satisfied with the initiative, success, and pleasure we find in it, we still feel overwhelmed and need to stop working; We need to not work. It does not matter how we make our bread, we still love leisure and fun and lethargy and stillness. We all need more play in life.

Once we are lazy, we subconsciously start making excuses for its development and growth; Excuses that we and those around us believe. The more severe the situation in this field, the more acceptable and professional excuses we can produce.
Wayne Dyer will not be with us this time, unlike the books we introduced earlier. He stands in front of us with a forbidden excuse and tells us that whatever we say is nothing more than an excuse. Suddenly, he takes away our false justifications and reasons that leave us empty-handed and we feel nothing but trying to get in front of our feet! If you also feel that you sometimes get this condition or it has become a permanent habit for you, be sure to read the excuse of prohibition.
