The Slow Lane. Out Now!

It took a village. After years of learning from my dogs, my daughters, and dozens of leaders who bring real change to the world, my book “The Slow Lane: Why Quick Fixes Fail and How To Achieve Real Change” is now on sale.

“A must-read for anyone dedicated to sustaining real, positive change on every level” - Darren Walker, President of the Ford Foundation
How it all took shape.

In The Slow Lane, I show how people are drawn to quick fixes, and how, by their very nature, they are superficial and only deepen what divides us. At a time when our problems couldn't feel more urgent and serious, The Slow Lane draws on lessons from successful change around the world that use slow, intentional actions to find lasting solutions.

Why Should You Read The Slow Lane?

The Slow Lane offers valuable insights not just for leaders in politics, business, and government. It also inspires inner work, that helps us change the way we relate to those around us: our family, friends, or teams. Real change, I show, can play out in a small group or team, or it can inspire transformative change in communities, movements, or organizations. Whether you are a leader in government, business or civil society, or a caring parent, volunteer or community organizer: If you care about positive change, The Slow Lane will give you insights to help you make an impactful contribution.

“I plan to put the lessons of this book to use immediately, in my personal and professional relations.” - Anne-Marie Slaughter, CEO, New America, and Professor Emerita, Princeton University.

Get The Slow Lane today, it is a guide to the kind of change, that will get you to the right place faster. Available in paperback, e-book, and audiobook everywhere. (Buy on Amazon, Audible, Bookshop.org, Buch7, Waterstones, Berrett-Koehler).
