    We live in the age of speed. We strain to be more efficient, to cram more into each minute, each hour, each day. Since the Industrial Revolution shifted the world into high gear, the cult of speed has pushed us to a breaking point. Consider these facts: Americans on average spend 72 minutes of every day behind the wheel of a car, a typical business executive now loses 68 hours a year to being put on hold, and American adults currently devote on average a mere half hour per week to making love.

    Across the Western world, more and more people are slowing down. Slower is better: better work, better productivity, better exercise, better sex, better food. Don't hurry, be happy. Almost everyone complains about the hectic pace of their lives. These days our culture teaches that faster is better. But in the race to keep up, everything suffers - our work, diet and health; our relationships and sex lives. Carl Honoré uncovers a movement that challenges the cult of speed.

    Aujourd'hui, la culture est à la rapidité. Mais dans cette course contre la montre, rien ne survit - notre travail, notre santé, nos relations, notre vie sexuelle. Nous sommes si pressés que la personne ou la chose qui nous ralentit représente, d'emblée, l'ennemi à abattre. L'enquête de Carl Honoré, menée de pays en pays, montre les différentes formes prises par un courant d'opinion baptisé "slow" qui touche de plus en plus de monde. Et si un bon usage de la lenteur pouvait rendre nos vies plus riches et plus productives ?
