This collection of essays, which represents some of Nocks finest work, was first published in 1958.This excerpt explains how the title came to be Snoring as a Fine Art:Snoring should be regarded as a fine art and respected accordingly.

If this be admitted, I might suggest further that our civilization does not so regard it, as it should, and gives the practice no encouragement, but rather the contrary.In our public affairs, for instance, I have of late been much struck by the number of persons who professedly had something. The starry-eyed energumens of the New Deal were perhaps the most conspicuous examples- each and all, they were quite sure they had something. They had a clear premonition of the More Abundant Life into which we were all immediately to enter by the way of a Planned Economy.

It now seems, however, that the New Deal is rapidly sinking in the same Slough of Despond which closed over poor Mr. Hoovers head, and that the More Abundant Life is, if anything, a little more remote than ever before.I do not disparage their premonition or question it- I simply suggest that the More Abundant Life might now be appreciably nearer if they had put enough confidence in their premonition to do a great deal less thinking, planning, legislating, organizing, and a great deal — oh yes, a very great deal — more snoring.Also included are the essays: Life, Liberty, and… Utopia in Pennsylvania, Advertising and Liberal Literature, Henry George, What the American Votes For, The Purpose of Biography, The Kings Jester: Modern Style, Alas, Poor Yorick, If Only, Epsteans Law, and Sunday in Brussels.To search for Mises Institute titles, enter a keyword and LvMI (short for Ludwig von Mises Institute)- e.g., Depression LvMI
