Timing is everything . . .
How can we use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule?
Why do certain breaks dramatically improve student test results?
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, Daniel H. Pink distills cutting edge research and data on timing and synthesises them into a fascinating, readable narrative. Packed with irresistible stories and practical takeaways, it provides compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives.
“When a book and a reader are meant for each other, both of them know it . . .
After the tragic death of his father, fourteen-year-old Benny Oh begins to hear voices. The voices belong to the things in his house and sound variously pleasant, angry or sad. Then his mother develops a hoarding problem, and the voices grow more clamorous. So Benny seeks refuge in the silence of a large public library. There he meets a mesmerising street artist with a smug pet ferret; a homeless philosopher-poet; and his very own Book, who narrates Benny’s life and teaches him to listen to the things that truly matter.
Blending unforgettable characters with jazz, climate change and our attachment to material possessions, this is classic Ruth Ozeki – bold, humane and heartbreaking.”
