At work, I am much more lnetitud and creative. A personal wake-up call. 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.

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

Elogio de la Lentitud : Carl Honore :

What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow? Impatience is also part of being human. What inspired you to embrace Slow?

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.


Why do we live so fast today? In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? Even I forget to slow down from time to time. How can I make the world a better place?

I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations. Being Slow means doing everything at the correct speed: Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. No, the world has always been this way. But you have to realistic. Now I never feel rushed any more.

But faster is not always better. Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush.

Elogio de la Lentitud : Un Movimiento Mundial Desafia el Culto a la Velocidad

Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains! What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast? Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all. Every day I open up my inbox and find a few emails from slogio around the world who say the book has changed their lives.


A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting. Forward-thinking companies all over the world are looking for ways to help their staff slow down.

I feel so much more alive now. How has slowing down changed your life? Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting. I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes!

Slowing down can be the antidote to that. The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster. Vibrant and very readable.
