Arts-Culture #34 (Sun Feb 17,2013) Author Carl Honore, The Slow Fix
(Carl Honore website)
This week our spotlight turns to non-fiction. We meet award-winning Canadian author Carl Honore.  He recently authored the highly successful book, In Praise of Slow, and he's back with The Slow Fix. It has as a subtitle, Solve problems, work smarter and live better.
In this latest book, he shows why our constant efforts to find quick solutions to problems big and small, is very often not a good idea at all, with the problems coming back time and again.  He suggests taking a slow and careful look at the issue, seek advice and through careful consideration actually find the best solution to issues.
