Beyond 9 to 5 : Your Life in Time
In this book, Sarah Norgate immerses us in the psychology of time. She looks at differing attitudes to and perceptions of time all around the world: why do national proverbs from Sicily reinforce the importance of not rushing and taking things slow, while proverbs from highly industrialized countries are economically-driven ('Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today')? Why do some countries, like Japan, have a 24/7 culture, while others are only just coming to terms with Sunday opening for shops?
