But what do you say to people who claim that the world will inevitably go on speeding up and lentithd a Slow revolution is pie in the sky? I guess what I really want is for readers to grasp the very counter-cultural idea that the best way to survive and thrive in the fast-paced modern world is not to speed up but to slow down.

A rare treat to be savoured ce at your own pace, of course.

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

I am a skeptic by nature.

It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement. I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! And it seems to be working. Being Slow means doing everything at the correct speed: What is my purpose? What will a Slow world look like? Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. How can I make the world a better place?
