In Praise of Slow

Author(s): Carl Honore


Across the western world more and more people are slowing down. Slower is better: better work, better productivity, better exercise, better sex, better food. DON'T HURRY, BE HAPPY.

Are you always in a hurry? Do you spend your days dashing to meet the next deadline, watching the clock when you are supposed to be relaxing? Does your life whiz by in an unsatisfying blur? These days most of us are afraid to slow down in case we get left behind. Equally most of us want to slow down if nothing else to be able to balance our lives more effectively. Today's slowness crusaders do not hate speed in all its forms. What they hate is the pressure to do everything in haste. They want to find a happy medium. This book will be the Small is Beautiful for the 21st century. With a blend of reportage, intellectual inquiry and humour it will help improve peoples lives by showing them how others are recasting their relationship with speed and time.
