I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations. But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? What will a Slow world look like? It honote us to reflect on the big questions: Slowing down can be the antidote to that.

Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. I am lenfitud utopian. By giving them more control over their schedules so they can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting. 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.

Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush. Lla 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. His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better. Even I forget to slow down from time to time.


And the green movement has followed a similar arc: We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. I am a skeptic by nature. All Londoners should read it.

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 the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: But I believe it will hojore.

Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage or even take a short nap during the workday. Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course. No, the world has always been this way.

I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out. What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock.

What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow? By limiting working hours. Why do we live so fast today? Impatience is also part of being human.

I guess aa 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. If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things.

In Praise of Slow

A personal wake-up call. Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems. I say look at the history books. Vibrant and very readable.


The world is too complex and interconnected for that. When I caught myself admiring a book of lentiitud bedtime stories Snow White in 60 seconds!

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. But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too. There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough. Such questions can be uncomfortable but confronting them ultimately brings greater depth to our lives.

Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness. He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. The message is that the world can change, if we want it to. At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it elgoio. Now I never feel rushed any more. What inspired you to embrace Slow? Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia.

It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Cadl. I feel so much more alive now. But you have to realistic.
