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

"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

"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

"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

About the Author

Brooke McAlary is a slow-travelling, gutsy shiraz-appreciating writer who, after being diagnosed with severe post-natal depression in 2011, embarked on a one-woman mission to cut out the excess in her life and reconnect with what was really important. She is now immersed in the Slow Living philosophy, and makes it her mission to help others define and achieve their slow living goals.

She writes the blog Slow Your Home, and hosts and produces the podcast, The Slow Home Podcast. She is currently slow-travelling her way around North America with her family.
