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.
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, home of the Slow Food, Slow Cities and Slow Sex movements.

interesting and useful but flat performance
a fascinating exploration into why taking our time can be a benefit to our wellbeing, communities, and the economy. will take lessons from it! can be repetitive which is exacerbated by a dry narration. Worth listening too but I'd recommend listening in batches rather than in one sitting.
