More than a decade ago, London-based writer Carl Honoré published a literary sensation, In Praise of Slowness, a clarion call against the “cult of speed.” Its genesis was a moment of truth as Honoré found himself on the verge of buying "one-minute bedtime stories" to read to his child. Speed, he realized, was a cultural addiction. Far from enhancing his life, it was eroding his pleasure in it. Hear what Honoré has learned from writing and speaking around the globe.
