LIVRE AUDIO– Éloge de la Lenteur

An abridged version of In Praise of Slowness read by an actor.

Today, the culture is about speed. But in this race against time, nothing survives – our work, our health, our relationships, our sex life. We are in such a hurry that the person or thing that slows us down immediately represents the enemy to be defeated. A whole current of opinion questions this cult of speed and reaffirms the virtues of slowness. Called “Slow”, it in no way claims that we must do everything at a snail’s pace but emphasizes that our quality of life requires a better balance between speed and slowness. Carl Honoré’s investigation, carried out from country to country, shows the different forms taken by this phenomenon which affects more and more people. What if good use of slowness could make our lives richer and more productive?
