Carl Honoré


“An in-demand spokesman on slowness.”
? The Wall Street Journal.

Carl is an award-winning writer and globetrotting ambassador for the Slow Movement. He graduated in History from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. After working with street children in Brazil, he covered Europe and South America for The Economist, Observer, Miami Herald, Houston Chronicle, National Post and Time magazine.

His first book, In Praise of Slow, examines our compulsion to hurry and it tells us how there is a global trend to slowing things down. The Financial Times said that Honoré was to the Slow Movement what Das Kapital is to communism. While researching In Praise of Slow, Carl was slapped with a speeding ticket.

His second book, Under Pressure, examines modern childrearing and was described by Time as a “gospel of the Slow Parenting movement.” His latest book, The Slow Fix, explores how to tackle problems in every walk of life, from health and relationships to business and politics, without falling for superficial quick fixes. Translated into more than 30 languages, his books have landed on bestseller lists in many countries.

Carl lives in London where, in his spare time, he plays for the top ball-hockey team in the UK.
