In the tradition of his internationally bestselling In Praise of Slow, and drawing on examples from the most progressive and successful leaders in business, politics, science and society, Carl Honoré brilliantly illuminates why the best way to face our problems might just be to take our time.

Addicted as we might be to the quick fix--pills, crash diets or just diverting attention from things about to go wrong--the quick fix never really works. Trying to solve problems in a hurry, sticking on a plaster when surgery is needed, might deliver temporary relief, but only at the price of storing up worse trouble for later. For those looking for a fix that sticks, The Slow Fix will help us produce solutions in life and work that endure.

"A terrific book." --Kathy English, Toronto Star

"Mr. Honoré is inarguably the world's leading evangelist for what has become known as the Slow Movement.... Now with his latest book, The Slow Fix, Mr. Honoré shows how changing our neurotic relationship to time...can change our lives for the better." --The Sunday Edition, CBC Radio

"Honoré offers a practical and entertaining guide to what he calls the 'slow fix' for problem solving.... This is a sound, thought-provoking book." --Mary Whaley, Booklist

"Accessible, lucid and wise, this book should sit in every government and managerial office." --The Independent

CARL HONORÉ is a Canadian writer living in London, England. His journalism has appeared in the Globe and Mail, the National Post, the Observer and the Economist. His first book, In Praise of Slow, was published in 30 languages and is an international bestseller. His second, Under Pressure, was a finalist for the Pearson Writers' Trust Non-Fiction Prize.
