9780007429592: The Slow Fix

What do we do when things go wrong in a fast world? Many of us go for the quick fix that delays the problem rather than solving it. To make real progress we need real solutions – we need to take time for THE SLOW FIX.

People have long been in search of a quick fix. Truth is, it doesn’t work. The problems facing us today are bigger and more urgent than ever before and we need to learn to start fixing things properly, rather than settling for short-term solutions.

The Slow Fix offers real, life-changing solutions to tackling these problems and extends the movement defined by Carl Honore in his global bestseller, In Praise of Slow, to offer a recipe for problem-solving that can be applied to every walk of life, from business and politics to relationships, education and health reform.

Taking time to build up expertise, taking advantage of the hidden benefits of teamwork, finding the right messenger to deliver the message, and employing a transparent approach are all essential elements of the Slow Fix.

This book will help you make sense of what is going wrong – and right – in the world, and gives inspiration, ideas and practical tools to help fix your own life and everything around you.

Review:

“Accessible, lucid and wise, this book should sit in every government and managerial office.” THE INDEPENDENT

“Mr. Honoré has a winning style and an infectious curiosity about the minutiae of other people’s lives.” THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

“A journey exploring the phenomenon of our collective disposition towards fast answers, shortcuts and easy solutions... [Carl Honoré] travels far and wide, examines everything from education to the military to fine art to fad diets to organ donation and gives us fantastic examples of why slower really is better.”
ACTIONABLEBOOKS.COM

For In Praise of Slow:

"Engagingly written and filled with interesting detail... a timely manifesto for a more civilised world." (SUNDAY TIMES Culture, 6 August )

"Presents an eloquent case for a thorough re-examination of priorities and shows how even subtle shifts in the way we live can have a very real effect on our well-being." (THE GUARDIAN, 20 August )

"Engaging." (THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY, 14 August )

"Readable and persuasive... it is virtually impossible to read Honore's book without deciding to take things, you know, a little slower from now on." (THE IRISH TIMES, 27 August )

"His advice is too grounded in day-to-day practicality to be guilty of didacticism or whimsy... read this uplifting and enlightening book very soon; but do, please, take your time." (TLS, 30 Sept )
