The slow fix: Solve Problems, Work Smarter, and Live Better in a World Addicted to Speed
The making of this book underscores its theme--to do something well takes time. Carl has spent the time traveling the globe and seeing firsthand what it takes to tackle problems of all shapes and sizes. This book addresses a fundamental truth: All of us in every area of our lives try to solve problems with a magic bullet. And yet deep down, we all know this quick-fix approach rarely works. Like it or not, when it comes to problems, our natural inclination is a shortcut, not a solution.
