Publisher's Summary

Daniel H. Pink, the number one best-selling author of Drive and To Sell Is Human, unlocks the scientific secrets to good timing to help you flourish at work, at school, and at home. 
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: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, Pink shows that timing is really 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 you 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 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.

Fun. Enlightening. Fast Paced.

This is an awesome book. So much going for it. The author, Dan Pink, is a great storyteller. He presents a lot of information but weaves it all into easy-to-follow stories. Some of the information - a lot of it, actually - is eye-opening and applies to everything one does. If you are like me, you’ll find yourself Googling this and that to help with applying these nuggets to your personal and professional life. You might even start thinking who you could buy copies for, only to find the list grow far too long to afford. Finally, Dan Pink is an excellent narrator. Nothing lacks or lags in the way he reads the book. It’s almost as if he’s talking personally to you. Yes, I loved it.

Fun, accessible and actionable

Really enjoyable book. I've read quite widely on many of these subjects, but still fascinating to hear Pink's take on them and to have them all in one place. I'm a business strategy coach and ll be referring clients to this book for a long time. But there is much in here for everyone.

Included with the audio book is a helpful pdf that covers all the suggested items at the end of each chapter. Find it in your audible library. Often these addendums are less than stelar, but this is excellent. I'd been considering having to buy a physical copy of the book to remember everything (hard for me as a dyslexic to take notes from audio).

This is a quick, fun read that will affect many aspects of your life for the better
