A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course.

Carl Honore

Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. Such questions can le uncomfortable but confronting them ultimately brings greater depth to our lives.

I say look at the history books. Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow. Vibrant and very readable. 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?


I am a skeptic by nature. It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement. 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. I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations.

It will take time. The good news is that the Slow movement is growing fast! The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster.

And the leentitud movement has followed a similar arc: 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. In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting.

Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow

It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane. But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too.


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. At work, I am much more productive and creative. Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed.

All Londoners should read dw. Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? But look at the world today. Impatience is also part of being human. No, the world has always been this way.

By limiting working hours. Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make.
