Across the western world more and more people are slowing down. Slower is better: better work, better productivity, better exercise, better sex, better food.

DON'T HURRY, BE HAPPY.

Almost everyone complains about the hectic pace of their lives. 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.

International bestselling author Carl Honoré uncovers a movement that challenges the cult of speed. In this entertaining and hands-on investigation, he takes us on a tour of the emerging Slow movement: from a Tantric sex workshop in London to a meditation room for Tokyo executives, from a SuperSlow exercise studio in New York, to Italy, the home of the Slow Food, Slow Cities and Slow Sex movements.

There has never been a better time to embrace the healing power of living slow.

Review:

"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)
