Advance Praise for Slow Family Living

“In a society set on having it all, Slow Family Living points out — Wait! You already have what you need. All you have to do is slow down and appreciate it. Bernadette Noll’s book helps us reject the time- and money-wasters we’ve been sold on, and savor the most golden thing we’ve got — time, especially time together.”
—Lenore Skenazy, author of Free-Range Kids

“Bernadette Noll has a long track record helping families slow down and find the pace of life that suits them best. How lucky we are that she has now distilled her experience into a wise and readable book. Slow Family Living is packed with practical ways to bring joy and sanity back to family life and give our children a childhood worthy of the name. In this overstimulated, crazy-busy, roadrunner culture of ours, every family needs a copy.”
—Carl Honoré, author of In Praise of Slow and Under Pressure

“Slowing down and making time for the gestation of your own ideas and being conscious of your own process are the foundations of both genius and happiness. Rather than letting the pace of the world determine your own family’s pace, Slow Family Living encourages everyone to step back from the craziness and determine their own rhythms and routines. The pauses are integral not only to happiness but to pure unadulterated brilliance.”
—Gever Tulley, author of 50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do)

“Bernadette Noll, one of my favorite authors, offers essential advice for healthy family living: Slow down and be present with yourself and your loved ones. Her 75 “recipes” for slow family living are down-to-earth and easy to implement. This book is a real gem, a peaceful haven in a sea of over-stimulation.”
—Peggy O’Mara, founder of
