Great topic! I am interested in the factors that can undermine learning motivation. In particular the schooling and grading system. In case you were interested, I have attached an article that discusses how providing students with less control and opportunities to make their own decisions in middle school can undermine learning motivation. http://www.jstor.org/stable/1001828?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents
Just had trouble following a couple of sentences which I have pasted below! Other then that youve done a terrific job :)
Through research such as Kelly’s (2009) leisure or recreational activities can be defined as activities that an individual chooses to take part in outside of work, leisure activities can be considered to be non-essential to living or survival.
Hierarchy of human needs:
In particular growth motivation can be considered (Maslow, 1943), Maslow (1943) stated that with in the proposed need hierarchy there are two kinds of motivation growth and deficiency.
Though understanding what motivates people to take part in recreational learning it is possible to use this understanding to get more people more engaged in recreational learning in order to benefit from the health and well-being improvements that could be gained.

In the Overview, present a one-section (without sub-sections) Overview of why the topic is important and what will be covered in the chapter. Perhaps consider introducing the topic through a case study.
There is surprisingly little mention of children's informal learning (e.g., through play) and/or retiree learning (e.g,. University of the 3rd age) - in other words, recreational learning across the lifespan.
Some theory is discussed in general, without research evidence to indicate its relationship to recreational learning (e.g., Maslow's hierarchy of needs).
Consider breaking the Conclusion into a couple of paragraphs and including practical, take-home messages.
Several relevant research studies are cited, but the chapter could be improved by describing the most important studies in more detail
described. They tend to be described one after the other. To improve the review of research, look for patterns and themes and try to synthesise the findings in order to convey a greater depth of understanding.
When describing important research studies, provide some indication of the nature of the method.
When discussing important research findings, indicate the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
Was the Maslow (1943) source directly consulted? If not, don't cite it (or use a secondary citation).
