Product description

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)

Book Description

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