Why are we always in such a rush? What's the cure for "time sickness"? Why slow down? On The Power of Slow, internationally acclaimed bestselling author Carl Honore probes these questions and more, to point us toward an alternative way of life that is becoming increasingly popular across Europe and the U.S. In his first audio programme, Honore invites listeners to "put on the brakes" with practices and tools that explore:- Integrating slow living into your relationships with family, lovers, co-workers, and even strangers - How to lead a richer, more balanced life by tapping the depths of the present moment - Why working less hard can actually make you more productive - How the "Slow Revolution" is making its way across the globe, transforming city planning, corporate culture, medicine, and more. "Our obsession with speed is taking a terrible toll on our work, our relationships, our diet and health-and the planet", explains Honore. With The Power of Slow, he offers a much-needed antidote for anyone eager to find freedom from "the cult of speed".
