Slow Living? Slow Food? Slow Cities? Where does one begin when it comes to slowing down?
In Praise of Slowness: Challenging the Cult of Speed by Carl Honoré is considered the go-to book when it comes to the Slow Movement. At this moment right now, the book sits right in the intersection between the beginning of the movement and today:
- Slow Food originated in 1986,
- In Praise of Slowness was published in 2004 (18 years after Slow Food started), and
- Here we are in 2020 (16 years after the book was originally published)
Carl's mission is clear: "to investigate the price of speed and the prospects for slowing down in a world obsessed with going faster and faster."
If there's a real-world benefit to slowing down, what do we need to know and how do we get started?
