Product description


"Finally, a slow living guide for the imperfect folks. If you're looking for a rule-riddled, anxiety-ridden manifesto thick on sanctimony and decree, you won't find it here. Paired with tremendous insights and joyful illustrations, Brooke McAlary's exuberant, honest words are a refreshing contribution to the slow living community. If you're seeking a simpler path, start here." - Erin Loechner, Blogger at and author of Chasing Slow

"Brooke McAlary shares her recipe for living a meaningful life in her new book, Slow. After reading this book, you'll have an amazing list of ingredients that can help you create a meaningful life, too!
" - The Minimalists Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus

"When so much of the messaging out there tells us to speed up, Brooke shows us how and why we might want to slow down. There is no one right way to do it, but it does start with noticing. Noticing what weighs you down and letting some of those things go. And noticing what leaves you feeling fulfilled and making time for more of that, instead. With the words coupled with the imagery, this book is a manifesto for what happens when you pursue a slower, simpler and more meaningful life." - Cait Flanders, author of The Year of Less

"I loved this book! It was short and sweet with many moments of brilliant and insightful ideas to live a more meaningful and thoughtful life." - Paul Jarvis

"If I could only give three words to describe Brooke McAlary's Slow, they'd be gentle, honest, and actionable . . . the perfect ingredients for a meaningful read." - Courtney Carver, author of Soulful Simplicity

"McAlary gives a much-needed gift to the chronically overcommitted with this wise self-help primer. " - Publishers Weekly

"A highly readable and attractive resource for anyone looking to slow down and decompress.
" - Library Journal - STARRED review

Product Description

'Dear Mr & Mrs Jones, I am writing to inform you of my withdrawal from the race to keep up with you . . .'

Once upon a time, Brooke McAlary thought she was close to having it all. Married to a wonderful man, mother to a lively young daughter, and pregnant for a second time, she'd acquired all the things she'd once thought important-holidays, cars, a renovated home. Yet despite this, she found herself utterly despondent. Realising that they wanted a simpler, more fulfilling existence, Brooke and her family gradually created their own way of living, with an emphasis on depth, connection and experiences.

In Slow Brooke gently encourages you to find pleasure and value in a simpler life, sharing the practical tips and rituals that have helped her on her own journey, from decluttering to de-owning, messiness to mindfulness, from asking why to asking where to now?

Part memoir, part practical companion, Slow provides a fascinating insight into the benefits of slowing down. It will inspire you to forget about the Joneses and create a life filled with the things that really matter to you . . . slowly, of course.
