Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. Now I never feel rushed any more. It allows us to reflect on the big questions: Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed.

Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock.

The boom in meditation or mindfulness in the corporate world is another sign that business is waking up to the power and wisdom of slowing down. Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts. I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago. Take the rise of feminism. It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane.

The world is too complex and interconnected for that. However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make. There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough.


I feel so much more alive now. But I believe it will happen. What will a Slow world look like? Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience!

And as the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things. What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow? Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage or even take a short nap during the workday. We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes!

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. But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too.

Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains! And it seems to be working.

Is the Slow Gonore also gaining ground in the workplace? Forward-thinking companies all over the world are looking for ways to help their staff slow down.

In Praise of Slow

No, the world has always been this way. All Londoners should read it. In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting. When I caught myself admiring a book of one-minute bedtime stories Snow White in 60 seconds!


But look at the world today. The good news is that the Slow movement is growing fast! What is my purpose? 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 a skeptic by nature. Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. A personal wake-up call. Even I forget to slow down from time to time. In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all of us.

I say look at the history books. A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds!
