But what do you say to people who claim that the world will inevitably go on speeding up and that a Slow revolution is pie in the sky?

Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow

Slowing down can be the antidote nonor that. I say look at the history books. I am healthier and have more energy. It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement.

A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting. In the 60s, when feminists said the world jonor unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: Such questions can be uncomfortable but confronting them ultimately brings greater depth to our lives. He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly.


His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better.

Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our lemtitud depends on the ideas it contains! It allows us to reflect on the big questions: Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock.

I am a skeptic by nature. Vibrant and very readable.

I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out. But faster is not always better.

I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! 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.

Cagl 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. Yonor has slowing down changed your life? There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough.

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.


A personal wake-up call. And the green movement has followed a similar arc: 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 lentiud years ago. What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? Why do we live so fast today? Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush. What sort of life should I be leading?

Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course. 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.
