The Slow Guide to Sydney is a new and inspirational lifestyle guide for Sydneysiders who want to slow down and live it up. Salve for the soul and a manual for managing in hectic times, it's like making a sea-change without shifting postcode. In a world spinning on the nexus between 'now' and 'next', The Slow Guide steps off the merry-go-round to celebrate all that's local, natural, traditional, sensory and most of all gratifying about life in Sydney. It discovers every aspect of local lifestyle and character through a sumptuously slow lens. Explore the natural features that shape and define Sydney, clip the wings of time, shop with soul, and have more fun in uniquely local ways. Readers will see, smell, hear, taste and even touch Sydney anew while creating a new bond with their community and surrounds. There's also a slow section for fast kids, and lots of inspirational tips, activities and affirmations that will help you live more and fret less. Stunning black-and-white photography will make Sydneysiders puff with pride over their hometown. The Slow Guide to Sydney was co-authored by Helen Hawkes, a prolific lifestyle journalist and author, and journalist Leta Keens.
