Summary
Unique blend of reportage, inquiry and humour. These days our culture teaches that faster is better. But in the race to keep up, everything suffers - our work, diet and health, our relationships and sex lives. We are in such a hurry that anyone or anything that slows us down becomes the enemy. Carl Honore uncovers a movement that challenges the cult of speed by proving that slower is often better. The Slow movement is not about doing everything at a snail's pace; it is about living better in the hectic modern world by striking a balance between fast and slow. From a Tantric sex workshop in London and a SuperSlow exercise studio in New York to Italy, home of the Slow Food, Slow Cities and Slow Sex movement, Honore's entertaining investigation reveals how we can live more productive, fulfilling lives by embracing the philosophy of Slow.
