In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: Take the rise of feminism. Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems.

I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. When I caught myself admiring a book of one-minute bedtime stories Snow White in 60 seconds!

Impatience is also part of being human. Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience! However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make.

But faster is not always better. If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things. I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course. Mastering the clock of business is about cal when to be fast and when to be slow. But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by?

At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all. It allows us to honre on the big questions: How has slowing down changed your life?

Now I never feel rushed any more. It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement. Go back to the kitchen!

What inspired you to embrace Slow? What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? And the green movement has followed a similar arc: 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. There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough.

I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! I also have time for those little moments that bring meaning and joy to life — reading to my children, sharing a glass of wine with my wife, chatting with a friend, pausing to gaze at a beautiful sunset. What sort of life should I be leading? I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out.

By limiting working hours. In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all of us. For a cultural revolution to occur, you need three factors: His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better. Even I forget to slow down from time to time.

Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow

Every moment of my day used to be a race against lenntitud clock. A personal wake-up call. 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. But look at eloogio world today. And as the world eoogio faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. The message is that the world can change, if we want it to. It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane.


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

The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster. I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations. Why do we live so fast today?

In Praise of Slow

I say look at the history books. Being Slow means doing everything at the correct speed: A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds!

Such questions can be uncomfortable but confronting them ultimately brings greater depth to our lives. What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast? How can I make the world a better place? Vibrant and very readable.

Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life.

Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything cark work and sex to food and parenting. By giving them more control over their schedules so they can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them.
