Every day I open up my inbox and find a few emails from readers around the world who say the book has changed their lives. But you have to realistic. 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. How can I make the world a better place? Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, farl distract ourselves with speed and busyness. Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life.
No, the world has always been this way. I am a skeptic by nature.
What is my purpose? Now I never feel lenittud any more. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting.
We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly.

It will take time. Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? What inspired you to embrace Slow? The message is that the world can change, if we want it to.
In Praise of Slow
What sort of life should I be leading? Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. At work, I am much more productive and creative. Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster.
The world is too complex and interconnected for that.
Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow. I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. I say look at the history books.
Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains! 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.
Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. I am healthier and have more energy. It allows us to reflect on the big questions: 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.
In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all of us. And the green movement has followed a similar arc: There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough. And as the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. The boom in meditation or mindfulness in the corporate world is another sign that business is waking up to the power and wisdom of slowing down.
Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just lentiud about slowing honroe makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed.
Elogio de la Lentitud : Carl Honore :
Impatience is also part of being human. Take the rise of feminism. A personal wake-up call. I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago.
