Impatience is also part of being human. I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out. What inspired you to embrace Slow? Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage lentitue even take a short nap during the workday. I feel so much more alive now. The good news is that the Slow movement is growing fast!

I say look at the history books. By giving them more control over their schedules so they can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them.

If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things. The world is too complex and interconnected for that.

It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement. Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: I guess what I really want is for readers to grasp the very counter-cultural idea that the lentitur way to survive and thrive in the fast-paced modern world is not to speed up but to slow down. I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. The message is that the world can change, if we want it to. Slowing down can d the antidote to that. I hope that they will pause and reflect on how they lead their lives and how their lives affect the people and the world around them.


For ccarl cultural revolution to occur, you need three factors: Dr is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? Every day I open up my inbox and find a few emails from readers around the world who say the book has changed their lives.

Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow. What sort of life should I be leading? Now I never feel rushed any more.

In Praise of Slow

Vibrant and very readable. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting. 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 wl was limited for her grandmother.

Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, farl or ashamed. I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes!

But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own lentitue, of course.

Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? What is my purpose? How can I make the world a better place? But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? I am no utopian. By limiting working hours. And as the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. No, the world has always been this way.


Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts. But what do you say to people who claim that the world will inevitably honoe on speeding up and that a Slow revolution is pie in the sky?

Carl Honore

What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast? All Londoners should read it. But look at the world today. Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush.

Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life. Every moment of my day used dd be a race against the clock. Even I forget to slow down from time to time. Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness. It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane. Take the rise of feminism.

Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? It will take time. His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better.
