How can I make the world a better place? What sort of life should I be leading? Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock.

Vibrant and very readable. Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness.

Obviously there is a long way to go to create a world of perfect gender equality, but a woman today could hardly imagine how severely life was limited for her grandmother. The good news is that the Slow movement is growing fast! No, the world has always been this way.

I hope that lentiitud will pause and reflect on how they lead their lives and how their lives affect the people and the world around them. Impatience is also part of being human. It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement. Forward-thinking companies all over the world are looking for ways to help their staff slow down.


His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better. Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life. The world is too complex and interconnected for that.

In Praise of Slow

Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting. Honre do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. Now I never feel rushed any more. What inspired you to embrace Slow? It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane.

We now have all three factors in kentitud for the Slow revolution to push on. In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough.

In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all of us. Take the rise of feminism. Lfntitud you have to realistic. And as the world gets faster, the need for a lenhitud of slowness will grow too. A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting.


Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage or even take a short nap during the workday. What is my purpose?

Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow

He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of lsntitud to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all. Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? I am no utopian.

Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. I am a skeptic by nature. I guess what I really want is for readers to grasp the very counter-cultural idea that the best way to survive and thrive in the fast-paced modern world is not to speed up but to slow down. But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? Even I forget to slow down from time to time. Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. At work, I am much more productive and creative.

Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts.
