What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow?

Forward-thinking companies all over the world are looking ka ways to help their staff slow down. But you have to realistic. I am no utopian.

At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all. Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience! But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? Impatience is also part of being human.


In Praise of Slowness is ccarl gift to all of us. 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. A personal wake-up call. What sort of life should I be leading? Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? Slowing down can be the antidote to that. And it seems to be working.

In Praise of Slow

Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. At work, I am much more productive and creative.

Lenitud Slow means doing everything at the correct speed: But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too. And as the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness.

A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course. It allows us to reflect on the big questions: What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? Go back to the kitchen!


Mastering the clock of business is about honpre when to be fast and when to be slow. He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out. Why do we live so fast today? Readers would be wise to savour it slowly.

Now I never feel rushed any more. I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more.

It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane. 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 her grandmother. Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed.
