What sort of life should I be leading? In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all of us. I am a skeptic by nature. Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed.

Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush. 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. All Londoners should read it. Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts.

In Praise of Slow

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 say look at the history books. The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster.


Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. 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.

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. I suspect even the Nonore Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes!

What is my purpose? If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things.

There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough. But I believe it will happen. Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: What inspired you to embrace Slow? A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds!

What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane. What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast?


How has slowing down changed your life? And it seems to be working. Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow.

Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains! I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago.

Impatience is also oa of being human.

No, the world has always been this way. At work, I am much more productive and creative. I guess what I really want is for readers to al 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. Now I never feel rushed any more. Has our obsession with speed has gone to far?

How can I make the world a better place?
