Description

Timing is everything. But we don't know much about timing itself. Timing, it's often assumed, is an art; in When, Pink shows that timing is in fact a science.

Drawing on a rich trove of research from psychology, biology and economics, Pink reveals how best to live, work and succeed. How can we use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule? Why do certain breaks dramatically improve student test scores? How can we turn a stumbling beginning into a fresh start? When should you have your first coffee of the day? Why is singing in time with other people as good for us as exercise? And what is the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers, or get married?

In When, Pink distills cutting edge research and data on timing and synthesizes them into a fascinating, readable narrative packed with irresistible stories and practical takeaways that give readers compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives.

Review quote

When brims with a surprising amount of insight and practical advice . . . Pink delivers the bad news about our time-based weaknesses with some good news about how to compensate for them. More delightful still, many of these tips involve simply slowing down, taking breaks and stealing naps. Alas, none of this advice will prevent time from flying by, but at least there are proven ways to fill our hours a bit better * * Wall Street Journal * * Intriguing . . . written with a light, assured touch -- ROBIN McKIE * * Observer * * Praise for Daniel H.

Pink is a phenomenal populariser of research. He has a rare gift for synthesising scientific, psychological and sociological studies and showing their radical relevance to work, society and schools through engaging storytelling * * Times Education Supplement * * A gifted writer who turns even the heaviest scientific study into something digestible - and often amusing - without losing his intellectual punch * * New York Post * * The breadth of the book's scope is impressive . . . Engaging, conversational and tightly edited, making it an easy yet important read * * Daily Mail * *
