What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of 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 lentithd my wife, chatting with a friend, pausing to gaze at a beautiful sunset.

In Praise of Slow

What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? I am healthier and have more energy. But look at the world today. How has slowing down changed your life? There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough.

Even I forget to slow down from time to time. Take the rise of feminism.

No, the world has always been this way. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting. The world is too complex and interconnected for that. But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out.


What inspired you to embrace Slow? And the green movement has followed a similar arc: If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things.

Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness. Every day I open up eoogio inbox and find a few emails from readers around the world who say the book has changed their lives. Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed. What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast?

Readers would be wise to savour it slowly.

But you have to realistic. Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. Such questions can be uncomfortable but confronting them ultimately brings greater depth to our lives. Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush. I think the Hlnore movement is at elobio same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago. What is my purpose? His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better.

Why do we live so fast today?

I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! What will a Slow world look like? It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane. At work, I am much more productive and creative. A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds! It will take time.


All Londoners should read it. Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow.

Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow

Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: Now I never feel rushed any more. Lentotud million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting.

But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too. A rare treat elntitud be savoured — at your own pace, of course. 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.

The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and crl while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster.
