    This is an opinionated musing on what is wrong with America in the author s eyes She strongly conveys her concern over our time starved lifestyle and urges us all to slow way down to create meaning, health, and community Mostly this is good advice and it is hard to argue with most of the content However, she also strongly points to government policies and the religious right as being the cause of all our angst and this seems a bit unfair She is a protestor and she doth protest loudly here S This is an opinionated musing on what is wrong with America in the author s eyes She strongly conveys her concern over our time starved...

    This was an interesting read I have always been interested in the voluntary simplicity movement and she is definitely one of the pioneers This book is less a how to manual anda collection of thoughts on the way we are living our lives, especially in the United States I agree with pretty much all she has to say, though she is quite outspoken about her opinions and seems to have lost the quality of having an open mind Two concepts really struck a chord with me The first is the idea of a This was an interesting read I have always been interested in the voluntary simplicity movement and she is definitely one of the pioneers This book is less a how to manual anda collection of thoughts on the way we are living our lives, especially in the United States I agree with p...

    This sounds like a lovely book, but then you begin to read it and realize the author cannot stop ranting about how conservatives have caused every problem in this world I m very liberal, but her bashing bored me after awhile it took the place of substance I wanted to read a book about slowing down and learning how to enjoy my life at a slower pace What I got was a political book that was really shrill in tone If I want to read about conservatism and it s faults, there are better books out This sounds like a lovely book, but then you begin to read it and realize the author cannot stop ranting about how conservatives have caused every problem in this world I m very liberal, but her bashing bored me after awhile it took the place of substance I wanted to read a book about slowing down and learning how to enjoy my life at a slower pace What I got was a political book that was really shrill in tone If I want to read about conservatism and it s fa...

    So much ranting I really wanted to push through it, but I stopped about 20 pages short when she suggested placed the blame for a school shooting on a student prayer groups who were the target.Slow is, indeed, beautiful But don t read this book if you want to know why.

    Finished Slow is Beautiful New visions of community, leisure, and joie de vivre by Cecile Andrews In this book Andrews motivates the idea of the slow life and discusses some way of slowing down your own life.The central claim of this book is that the fast life does not lead to happiness The constant chase aftermoney,status, andstuff decreases happiness rather than increases it Some people find the fast life satisfying, but it is ...

    This book had a really interesting discussion of the research about happiness, and the message about dropping out of the consumerist, materialistic, work driven society resonates with me I liked that about it, if for no other reason than it was preaching to my choir I m not very into New Age type stuff, so the discussion of the universe was vaguely annoying, but not awful I think one can promote the idea of slowing down from a purely pragmatic perspective, without having to discuss being one This book had a really interesting discussion of the research about happiness, and the message about dropping out of the consumerist, ...

    This book was a disappointment I approve and applaud the principles that the author is promoting, but she wrapped them in such contempt for conservative values and made outrageous assumptions about how conservatives might behave if only they werent, you know conservatives I was looking for a book with pragmatic suggestions for balancing work life demands I didn t find anything pragmatic in this book Her idea of building community amounted to organizing political and socialist activities This book was a disappointment I approve and applaud the principles that the author is promoting, but she wrapped them in such contempt for conservative values and made outrageous assumptions about how conservatives might behave if only they werent, you know conservatives I was looking for a book with pragmatic suggestions for balancing work life demands I didn t find anything pragmatic in this book Her idea of building community amounted to organizing political and socialist activities and while I have no objection to any of those activities, they don t resonate for me In fact, i still view political and socialist activities as work The only thing I took from this book is a recognition for greater relationship connections...

    Checked this one out from the library and decided not to delve too deeply into it after reading the intro The title s purpose is pretty fantastic The intro Judgmental and negative, with big presumptuous leaps And this is coming from a non conservative who also doesn t drive an SUV D She even deemed laughing yoga participants sad, tsk When I flipped through the book, each sentence I landed on seemed to be much of the same, but I didn t read enough to give it an accurate, truthful review Checked this one out from the library and decided not to delve too deeply into it after reading the intro The title s purpose is pretty fantastic The intro ...

    I like this book I really really like this book She has also written books on Voluntary Simplicity One things I like about this book is the fact that it is a compilation of information on what makes people happy and it shows that it is not about how much money you have It really hard to describe it it quickly I don t have a whole lot of time, right now to say it eloquently One important point she makes is that people in countries where there is not a large gap between the rich and poor, ev I like this book I really really like this...
