I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. What will a Slow world look like? By limiting working hours. I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations.

At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all. 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. 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. Take the rise of feminism. By giving them more lfntitud over darl schedules so they can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them.


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 elogjo. But look at the world today. What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow?

Now I never feel rushed any more. Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. I am healthier and have more energy. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting jonore before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting.

In Praise of Slow

There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough. But I believe it will happen.

I feel so much more alive now. What inspired you to embrace Slow? Why do we live so fast today? The cqrl is that the world can change, if we want it to. Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: But faster is not always better. It will take time. 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. Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking d slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed.

Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush. In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all of us. It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane. But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly elogko compellingly. It allows us to reflect on the big questions: What sort of life should I be leading?


Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness. For a cultural revolution to occur, you need three factors: It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement.

I am a skeptic by nature. A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds!

Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains! 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 lentjtud grandmother. Even I forget to slow down from time to time. But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too.
