Not surprisingly I rather like this TV ad promoting tourism in my home province of Alberta: “Keep it slow, remember to breathe…”

Slow Fix on 46th Floor

An unusual video of me in a room on the 46th floor of a hotel in downtown Toronto.

Don’t worry, it’s not that kind of video.

Instead, I’m talking about the financial crisis and THE SLOW FIX. I’m also wandering round the room, sitting on the bed, washing my face in the basin and opening the curtains with a portentous flourish.

All in moody slow motion.

It’s a bit Bill Murray in Lost in Translation...

Bestseller Status

All the blood, sweat and tears of the book tour were worth it. THE SLOW FIX is now into its second week at Number 2 in the Maclean’s Canadian national bestseller list.

Free-range kids?

A 30-minute TV show from Canada looking into the pros and cons of the modern approach to childrearing. I’m one of the featured guests.

Canadian TV on childhood

An interview I did on Canadian TV on Slow Childhood and Slow Parenting. It was over the Web, which is why I am wearing an earphone. I’m not listening to music at the same time!

This is a short clip from a full-length show that is posted elsewhere on the site under the name “Free-range kids?”
