Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows that timing is everything. But we don't know much about timing itself. Our lives are a never-ending stream of 'when' decisions: when to start a business, schedule a class, get serious about a person. Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork. 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? Why should we avoid going to the hospital in the afternoon? 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 distils cutting-edge research and data on timing and synthesizes them into a fascinating narrative packed with irresistible stories and practical takeaways that give listeners compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

Fascinating insight into time

I learned so much! Timing, body clock, behaviour, social interactions - everything is linked. I loved the science and the handbook. my meta critique would be whether we all have to function optionally all the time? is it not also ok to experience a slump in productivity?

Starts fine but tapers off towards the end

The book starts interesting and has some good data on the importance of time and also has information on evaluating yourself and learning about oneself.

However as we progress the specificity tapers off and almost everything and anything becomes important and worth considering. This sorta defeats the purpose

Good book, interesting insights

This is a good book that covered and surveyed different topics related to time. Found the chapter on synchronisation fascinating. There is some great tips for making the most of natural rhythms. I also liked the chapter on middle life and the middle of projects and how to manage the consequences.

Something always valuable from dan pink

This is 3 1/2 stars from the always interesting Daniel pink. Not quite as good as Drive but still definitely worth the time to listen to.
