So I have just read all about how to slow down. Some of you may be wondering at this point why I would need such instruction but sometimes it helps to read around you knowledge base!
It starts off with an overview of what is meant in this context by “Slow” and this is then repeated with quotes and examples for the first couple of chapters.
After a struggle through that I reached the meat of the book looking at diffirent aspect of modern life and how a slow ethic can be applied. To work, to exercise, to love, to children, to food and to life in general.
Finally there was a review with yet more quotes but in a more reflective quality rather than the hard sell of the first chapters.

more in a bit…
