    Slowness is the key to living life to the fullest in the Fast Lane.

    Finally, a book to challenge the speed freaks, habitual microwave users and people who prefer to read cliff notes! Carl Honore writes an excellent book that makes a persuasive argument that the best way to enjoy and maintain a healthy lifestyle is to find time to slow down. While he does not advocate chucking the speed baby out with the bathwater, he does stress that one should find time to slow down and enjoy life so when people are on the fast track they are constructive instead of burnt out.

    He does his best to outline ways that you can slow down without taking extra time out. He makes a persuasive argument against speeding while driving, for slow workouts and taking the stairs whenever feasible. He does not stop at the easy changes, and advocates much more in depth lifestyle changes for those who can manage it, from slow cooking to moving into a slow neighborhood/city.

    Overall, there is something that just about anyone who wants to slow down should be able to use and start on the road to constructive easy living.
