Carl Honore – Author of In Praise of Slow

Book by Carl Honore. The web link highlights his main ideas from the publication and introduces what the slow movement is. He emphasizes that today’s society has festered an obsession for speed and favoured quantity over quality. This applies in all aspect of our lives, from food to technology to parenting. The slow movement is a mindset and a lifestyle – it’s about resorting back to a pace where we are able to do things at a right speed. The book touches upon some interesting issues such as sustainable design and quality over production.

“Speed has its place in the modern world. Often you have to move quickly, particularly at work. The problem is that speed has become a way of life. We do everything in a rush. We are stuck in fast forward and that is unhealthy.
