Description

In a world where time is money, faster is better, and “if you snooze you lose,” millions of people are doing the unthinkable: they’re slowing down. What’s more amazing, they’re healthier, happier, and excelling at both work and play. You know the dilemma: when there already aren’t enough hours in the day, how can slowing down be the solution?

On The Power of Slow, bestselling author Carl Honoré shows you how to lead a richer, more rewarding life by joining the “slow revolution” that is sweeping across the globe. Honoré traced the myriad ways the slow revolution is taking hold across the United States and beyond, from corporate culture to medicine to city planning. Now, he invites you to experience the power of slow firsthand as you “put on the brakes” in order to learn:

  • The Velocity Audit—a three-step process for pinpointing the areas in your life where you may need to slow down, and getting past the deep-seated objections that often arise
  • Finding “the right speed” for any job to make time your ally, not your enemy
  • Invoke your Inner Tortoise—a powerful mind-body method for accessing an “oasis of calm” whenever you need it

The slow philosophy is about giving each task the time and focus that it deserves so that you do it better and enjoy it more. Packed with guided exercises for staying productive while slowing down the way you eat, email, work out, and more, The Power of Slow gives you the confidence and tools finally to break free from the cult of speed.

Listening to this literally changed my life. I got it as a birthday present from my husband (think there was a hint there!) and it lay around in our basement for months. Then one day I just felt like trying it out. I immediately was hooked. Honore opened my eyes to how I was rushing through everything in my life. I loved all his practical advice for slowing down. I also really liked his humor and speaking style. Thanks to Honore I have reconnected with my inner tortoise (thats his phrase, not mine!). If you are stuck in fast-forward like I was, take the time to listen to these CDs. Five stars from me!

Slow is fine if you're going too fast, but intensity, a necessity, is ignored.

I wanted to like this book but I couldn't get over the intensity of his voice. Carl is talking about slowing down but his voice is rather fast and has an anxious tone. I only made it throughout the first tape.
