9780007429608: The Slow Fix: Lasting Solutions in a Fast-Moving World

What do we do when things go wrong? A quick fix can hide the problem rather than solve it. To make real progress we need to take time for the slow fix.

Whether we find ourselves challenged at home or work, or by problems on a grander, even global scale, we let ourselves be seduced by the quick fix. Truth is, it doesn’t work – quick fixes postpone lasting solutions or can turn something a bit wrong into something catastrophic. 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 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.

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.’ Independent

‘Mr. Honoré has a winning style and an infectious curiosity about the minutiae of other people’s lives.’ 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’ Actionable Books
