He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly.

Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting. A rare treat to be savoured lentittud at your own pace, of course. I am no utopian. 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.

And as the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and lenhitud while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster. How can I make the world a better place?

His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better. Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow?

Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems. It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane. For a cultural revolution to occur, you need three factors: I say look at the history books.

In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all of us. What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia.

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

Why do we live so fast today? A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting.

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. It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement. Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? 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.

And it seems to be elobio. What will a Slow world look like? By limiting working hours.

Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow

I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! At work, I am much more productive and lenttud. Now I never feel rushed any more.

However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make. Impatience is also part of being human. But I believe it will happen.


Forward-thinking companies all over the world are looking for ways to help their staff slow down. Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things.

I feel so much more alive now. But what do you say to people who claim that the world will inevitably go on speeding up and that a Slow revolution is pie in the sky?

It allows us to reflect on the big questions: Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains! Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage or even take a short nap during the workday. Take the rise of feminism.

Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? What is my purpose? By giving them more control over their schedules so they can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them. Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds! The good news is that the Slow movement is growing fast! I am a skeptic by nature.
