Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. I am a skeptic by nature. We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on.
What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow?
honoree Being Slow means doing everything at the correct speed: I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! Forward-thinking companies all over the world are looking for ways to help their staff slow down.
A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course. By limiting working hours.
In Praise of Slow
Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems. I feel so much more alive now. Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts. What is my purpose?

The world is too complex and interconnected for that. Even I forget to slow down from time to time. Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness. How can I make lenritud world a better place? But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too.
He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. 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.
And as the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make.
Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting. All Londoners should read it. Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: When I caught myself admiring a book of one-minute bedtime stories Snow White in 60 seconds!
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. I am no utopian. And the green movement has followed a similar arc: What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? By giving them more control over their schedules so they can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them.
Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush.
I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out. In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: But look at the world today. There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough.
Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow. Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster. But faster is not always better. Now I never feel rushed any more.
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. A million times more inspiring than any of the mass lentktud self-help books around on downshifting.
Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience! It will take time. How has slowing down changed your life?
