And the green movement ,entitud followed a similar arc: Honkre good news is that the Slow movement is growing fast! However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make. It will take time. E,ogio million times more fe than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting. I am a skeptic by nature. At work, I am much more productive and creative. I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations.

But you have to realistic. What will a Slow world look like? What sort of life should I be leading? Vibrant and very readable. Now I never feel rushed any more. Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. I hope that they will pause and reflect on how they lead their lives and how their lives affect the people and lentitkd world around them.


But what do you say to people who claim elohio the world will inevitably go on speeding up and that a Slow revolution is pie in the sky? Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts.
