The Slow Fix: Solve Problems, Work Smarter, and Live Better in a World Addicted to Speed

By Carl Honore

A doctor prescribes a pill to treat symptoms of a disease instead of the root cause. The CEO of a corporation takes a shortcut to financial growth. A new mom embarks on a crash diet to get rid of pregnancy pounds.

Quick fixes have become the commonly accepted approach to problems in almost every area of our lives. And yet these "instant" solutions don't work, lead to more problems, and end up taking more of our precious time.

With The Slow Fix, international bestselling author Carl Honore doesn't only describe what's wrong with taking the quick or easy route; he shows us a new approach to problem solving that works in any area of life, from health and relationships to business and community. Honore details a new paradigm for efficient, sustainable problem solving, teaching us how to utilize time to build expertise, take advantage of teamwork, find the right messenger to deliver our message, and much more.

The Slow Fix changes our understanding of problem solving. Whether we're negotiating the family chore load at home, addressing a delicate issue at work, or attempting to tackle something on a large scale, Honore shows us ways to solve problems today that will prove sustainable for years to come."
