Not a bad book, but not much new info.

Very interesting exploration of the problems inherent in our "do it faster" world, and the various people and trends that are running (walking?) counter to it.

Honore has a tendency to go on and on a bit more than I'd prefer, but maybe that's just my still-present impatience and desire to get through the book faster!

I enjoyed this book about taking life a full notch back. It was insightful and enjoyable to read. But the actual text is really the lesson we all should read and take to heart.
