Monocle has always been a champion of taking it slow. It has encouraged readers to dive into a lake and go for a run. To sleep well. To eat food whose makers are proud of its provenance. In a shouty, jabbing-finger moment in history, it has done its bit to argue for a new modern etiquette to be generous with our time, hospitality and forgiveness. Now its editors and correspondents have brought all of this together in The Monocle Manifesto for a Gentler Life, a book that urges us all to slow down, reconnect, make good things and see nice places. And it also knows when to wear a cheeky smile. Chapters include:



• An illustrated guide to being nice, respecting your neighbour and controlling your social media rants.

• Profiles of the happiest nations – and the least lonely too.

• How to build a house that’s good for you and your family.

• Essays from leading thinkers and great writers on what we can gain if we shift gear.

• The businesses charting a better course – from management to pride in production.

• Food – a celebration of the locally made, the chefs that bring people together and a recipe or two.

• The objects to own that will give pleasure for years.

• The people who changed direction, slowed down and made it work.

• The compact cities where you can run a company, be inspired, have a good social life – and be hiking in a forest at 5pm.
