Carl Honoré is a bestselling author, broadcaster, and the voice of the Slow Movement. His two main-stage TED Talks have racked up millions of views.
Carl travels the world to deliver powerful keynotes that put time and tempo in a whole new light. His counter-intuitive message is simple but game-changing: To thrive in a fast world, you have to slow down.
Carl’s first book, In Praise of Slow, chronicles the global trend toward putting on the brakes in everything from work to food to parenting. The Financial Times said it is “to the Slow Movement what Das Kapital is to communism.”
Carl’s second book, Under Pressure, explores how to raise and educate children in a fast world and was hailed by Time as a “gospel of the Slow Parenting movement.”

Every day, I try to do less and concentrate more. Less is always more, thanks a lot, Carl!
Carl’s third book, The Slow Fix, explores how to tackle complex problems in every walk of life, from health and relationships to business and politics, without falling for superficial, short-term quick fixes.
Carl’s latest book, Bolder: Making The Most Of Our Longer Lives, explores aging – how we can do it better and feel better about doing it. It’s a spirited manifesto against ageism.

In Praise of Slow was a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week and the inaugural choice for the Huffington Post Book Club.

All his books are essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life. Do not miss the present time, the NOW. It is the only sure thing we have! Seize it!
The time has always been the same before and after social media. Time is not going faster than in the past. The clock clicks, as it has always done.
Carl`s book, Praise of Slow, lays the foundation text and handbook of the Slow Movement. Dissects our compulsion to hurry and chronicles a global trend toward putting on the brakes.
“Time perception matters because it is the experience of time that roots us in our mental reality.”
