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
I found this book hard to put down and well worth my time. It was inspiring and well researched.
This book gives an entertaining,rigorous and useful account of how time influences our lives. I will definitely recommend it to my friends.

I enjoy Pink's writing style and he does a good job of the narration. There's plenty of good content here but, as is often the case with this type of book, much of it will already be familiar if you're a fan of Freakonomics, Nudge or Thinking fast and slow.
If you could sum up When in three words, what would they be?
Insightful, evidence based
What other book might you compare When to, and why?
Drive by Dan Pink because it has a similar flow and use of external evidence, so isn't just Dan's opinion.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The Time Hackers handbook
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When I realised I wasn't an owl or a lark, but a third-bird.
Any additional comments?
A great buy.
"When" answers many questions that seem obvious once revealed, but that few have thought to ask. In a similar vein to "Drive", Dan Pink grabs the data from many sources, to construct a meaningful guide to optimising your performance in all arenas, from the professional to the personal. If you're a teacher this book will make many pennies drop. If you're a human being who sleeps, it will give you relatable and useful information. In other words, everyone should read this book.
