Why read it?
1 author picked Faster as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
The first book I read to research the cult of speed. It's an exhaustive and chilling catalogue of our chronic impatience: how long we wait on hold before hanging up; how soon we start stabbing the Close Door button in an elevator. The book itself is a little breathless, and it confirmed my suspicion that everything was speeding up – with diminishing returns.
Our community of 6,000+ authors has personally recommended 10 books like Faster.
