Carl Honoré is a globetrotting ambassador for the Slow Movement . The Wall Street Journal described him as “an in-demand spokesman on slowness.” After working with street children in Brazil, he covered Europe and South America for the Economist, Observer, Miami Herald, Houston Chronicle, National Post and Time magazine. His first book, In Praise of Slow, examines our compulsion to hurry and chronicles a global trend toward putting on the brakes. The Financial Times said it is “to the Slow Movement what Das Kapital is to communism.” His second book, Under Pressure, examines modern childrearing and was described by Time as a “gospel of the Slow Parenting movement.” His latest book, The Slow Fix, explores how to tackle problems in every walk of life, from health and relationships to business and politics, without falling for superficial quick fixes.
