Reviews
"Why is the pedal pushed to the metal in virtually every area of our lives? The reasons--historical, theological, technological, financial--are many, and no one has untangled them better than Mark Taylor in this remarkable book, his most important work to date."--Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography--Jack Miles
"Taylor's observant thought process inspires and promotes the kind of dramatic cultural change necessary to unplug and reflect."--Kirkus Reviews--Kirkus Reviews
"With panache and flashes of brilliance, Taylor, a Columbia University religion professor and cultural critic, offers a philosophically astute analysis of how time works in our era: more is being squeezed into smaller and smaller bits of time, and everyone feels that they have less of it. . . . There is, appropriately, no quick fix, but Taylor provides plenty of provocative, learned ideas." --Publishers Weekly--Publishers Weekly
"Speed Limits is an insightful and provocative book that deserves the widest possible readership. But with one cautionary note: dear readers, please don't rush through it."--Howard Segal, THES-- (11/20/2014)
