about

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.

Editorial Reviews

NATIONAL BESTSELLER   “Mr. Honoré has a winning style and an infectious curiosity about the minutiae of other people’s lives.” —The Wall Street Journal  “Accessible, lucid and wise, this book should sit in every government and managerial office.” —The Independent  “With sharp, rhythmic prose, Honoré presents a number of guideposts to effective problem solving supported by intriguing anecdotes…. A feast of stories about people overcoming all manner of obstacles, with the promise of showing us how to better cope with our own struggles.” —Quill & Quire  “Honoré is a skilled journalist, well aware of the virtues of brevity in relating an anecdote or setting a scene or making a point. The narrative never bogs down.” —National Post “After reading the first six pages of The Slow Fix at my desk, I turned to a coworker and exclaimed, ‘This is so good!’ . . . Honoré’s writing remains engaging throughout, with careful attention to the people and places that populate his examples of successful slow fixes.” —Jack Covert, President of 800-CEO-READ
