But look at the world today. 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 am a skeptic by nature.

Elogio de la Lentitud : Carl Honore :

And as the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow? There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this lejtitud enough. At work, I am much more productive and creative. I am no utopian. Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems.

I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago.

It will take time. The good news lw that the Slow movement is growing fast! A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds!


If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things. A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting.

Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. What hhonore a Slow world look like? What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast? I say look at the history books.

In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all of us. Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. What inspired you to embrace Slow? In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane.

By limiting working hours. By giving them more control over their schedules so they can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them. I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations.

He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly.

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 lengitud.


Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience! Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage or even take a short nap during the workday. But if we slow down, laa life will pass us by?

No, the world has always been this way. Impatience is also part of being human. The world is too complex and interconnected for that. Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life. But I believe it will happen.

What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains! A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course. How can I make the world a better place?
