Item description for Elogio De La Lentitud/the Praise of Moving Slow by Jordi Fibla Carl Honore...

Life is getting faster, no doubt about it. We rush everything: we eat fast food, have quickie sex, drive like maniacs, and compete hard for fast-paced jobs. Why are we always in such a rush? What is the cure for time-sickness? Is it possible, or even desirable, to slow down? The big secret is that slower people succeed, and slow often works better than fast. In Praise of Slowness traces the history of our increasingly breathless relationship with time, and tackles the consequences and conundrum of living in this accelerated culture of our own creation. With chapters on food, transportation, meditation and exercise, medicine, sex, work, and parenting, London-based journalist, Honor shows us the benefits of slowness. Description in Spanish: Por qu tenemos siempre tanta prisa? Cmo se cura esa autntica enfermedad que es nuestra actitud ante el tiempo? Es posible, e incluso deseable, hacer las cosas con ms lentitud? Vivimos en la era de la velocidad. El mundo que nos rodea se mueve con ms rapidez de lo que jams lo haba hecho. Nos esforzamos por ser ms eficientes, por hacer ms cosas por minuto, por hora, cada da. Desde que la revolucin industrial hizo avanzar al mundo, el culto a la velocidad nos ha empujado hasta el punto de ruptura. Esta obra rastrea la historia de nuestra relacin cada vez ms dependiente del tiempo, y aborda las consecuencias y la dificultad de vivir en esta cultura acelerada que hemos creado.
