This is an auction for IN PRAISE OF SLOW by Carl Honore.

Subtitled "How a Worldwide Movement is Challenging the Cult of Speed".

"Engagingly written ... a timely manifesto for a more civilised world."
- SUNDAY TIMES (UK)

"Presents an eloquent case for a thorough re-examination of priorities and shows how even subtle shifts in the way we live can have a very real effect on our well-being."
- THE GUARDIAN (UK)

"Readable and persuasive... it is virtually impossible to read Honore's book without deciding to take things, you know, a little slower from now on."
- THE IRISH TIMES

"His advice is too grounded in day-to-day practicality to be guilty of didacticism or whimsy... read this uplifting and enlightening book very soon; but do, please, take your time."
- Times Literary Supplement

Amazon.com review:

"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. We are in such a hurry that anyone or anything that slows us down becomes the enemy. Carl Honore uncovers a movement that challenges the cult of speed by proving that slower is often better. The Slow movement is not about doing everything at a snail's pace; it is about living better in the hectic modern world by striking a balance between fast and slow. From a Tantric sex workshop in London and a SuperSlow exercise studio in New York to Italy, home of the Slow Food, Slow Cities and Slow Sex movement, Honore's entertaining investigation reveals how we can live more productive, fulfilling lives by embracing the philosophy of Slow."
