This is the story of Hánno, the laziest man in the world. He doesn't like money and all the bother that money brings with it. He has no need to buy anything, because he can find everything he needs for his daily life in his local environment. He can't be bothered to do anything other than relax, or care for his cow Girjo … But is Hánno really lazy? Or is the book a subtle protest against today's society, with it's deadlines and constantly increasing demands?
