Cecile Andrews on Slow is Beautiful: New Visions of Community, Leisure, and Joie de Vivre.We're hammered, we're slammed, we're out of control. Happiness is on the decline in the most affluent country in the world and Americans are troubled by the destructiveness of a lifestyle devoted to money and status. Yet no one seems to have a clue how to exit from the Fast Lane...."Slow is Beautiful" analyzes the subtle consumer, political and corporate forces stamping the joy from our existence and provides a vision of a more fulfilling life through the rediscovery of caring community, unhurried leisure, and life affirming joie de vivre.Andrews discusses the frantic time poverty plaguing everyone - a poverty that is being challenged by the growing Slow Life movement whose message is reverberating around the world; the need to build a culture of connection with both people and the planet by challenging the consumer society and recreating vibrant life in our local communities; the creation of a different experience of time where we live life in slower, more reflective ways, savoring our lives and recapturing exuberance and laughter - Cody's BooksCecile Andrews is a community educator, author of Circle of Simplicity and contributor to several books on living more simply and taking back our time. She and her husband are founders of Seattle's Phinney Ecovillage, a neighborhood-based sustainable community.moreless
