Editorial Review

"Try reading this book one chapter a day -- it is worth allowing its subversive message to sink slowly in so it has a chance of changing your life." -- Bill McKibben, author of Enough: Staying Human in an Engineered Age and The End of Nature

"The speed of life borders on insanity for an increasing number of us, and the price we pay is the erosion of our happiness and health. If you sometimes feel engulfed by the mad pace of modern life -- and who doesn't? -- Carl Honoré's In Praise of Slow could prove life-saving." -- Larry Dossey, MD -- Author:  Healing Beyond the Body and Reinventing Medicine

"In this terrific book, Carl Honoré gets to the heart of what's ailing western industrial societies -- our obsession with productivity, speed and consumerism -- but he doesn't stop with the gloom and doom.  Instead, he shows the way out, with inspiring examples from the growing worldwide "slow " movement.   Take the time to read this important, excellently written  book -- our future depends on the ideas it contains!" -- John de Graaf, co-author, Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic, and editor, Take BackYour Time --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
