After rushing through bedtime stories with his son, Carl Honore was inspired to explore the lacking presence and enormous value of slowness.

Carl points out that we have a cultural taboo against S L O W, and that our speed of life has created many challenges in our relationship to ourselves and to the world around us. Is S L O W possible? Do you think you can incorporate it into your life?
