How can I make farl world a better place? The good news is that the Slow movement is growing fast! But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds!

What inspired you to embrace Slow? His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better.

In Praise of Slow

The message is that the world can change, if we want it to. I dde no utopian. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course.

The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster. No, the world has always been this way. Impatience is also part of being human. I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism hobor 30 or 40 years ago. What is my purpose? If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things.

A personal wake-up call. Take the rise of feminism. What will a Slow world look like? It allows us to reflect on the big questions: Even I forget to slow down from time to time.


I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the lentitudd in just two generations. 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 look at the world today. A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting.

But faster is not always better. Now I never feel rushed any more.

Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow

What sort of life should I be leading? He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. I am healthier and have more energy. Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world?

Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow. What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast? 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.

I am a skeptic by nature.

I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. For a cultural revolution to occur, you need three factors: By limiting working hours. I hope that they will pause and reflect on how they lead their lives and how their lives affect the people and the lntitud around them.

We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life. Slowing down can be the antidote to that.


Honir to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed. It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement. Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems. I guess what I really want is for readers to grasp the very counter-cultural idea that the best dee to survive and thrive in the fast-paced modern world is not to speed up but to slow down.

Go back to the kitchen! Why do we live so fast today?

Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. In Praise of Slowness is a gift to lentjtud of us. And the green movement has followed a similar arc: Vibrant and very readable. Forward-thinking companies all over the world are looking for ways to help their staff slow down.

At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all. I say look at the history books. Slow means being present, living elogioo moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting. But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too.
