Carl Honoré is an award-winning author and globetrotting ambassador for the Slow Movement. After working with street children in Brazil, he covered Europe and South America for the Economist, Miami Herald, Houston Chronicle and Time magazine. His first book, In Praise of Slowness, 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 hailed by Time as a “gospel of the Slow Parenting movement.” His new 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. Translated into more than 30 languages, his books have landed on bestseller lists in many countries. The Wall Street Journal hailed Carl as “an in-demand spokesman on slowness.” His TED talk has been viewed 800,000 times.
