--Leisure Sciences "Regardless of where you stand on this issue, Robinson and Godbey's arguments and data make for very interesting reading and open a cultural window on American society. . . . This is a piece of scholarship that should be read and its conclusions contemplated by people well outside the readership of this journal. . . . Time for Life is good social science research that should appeal to a broad audience."
--Journal of Communication "Time for Life . . . is excellent fodder for lively classroom discussions, not only about family time use, but about the ontological and epistemological assumptions in the prevailing post-positivist paradigm of family science."
--Alan J. Hawkins and Jeffrey Hill, Journal of Marriage and the Family "Time for Life, an outstanding work of scholarship that manages to be highly readable, demands the attention of everyone interested in what's happening in today's society."
--Edward Cornish, The Futurist
