Product description


"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." --The Wall Street Journal

"Known for his popular books on motivation and creativity, Pink tackles the science behind how we organize our time and how we should set up the routines of our days." --Washington Post, 11 Leadership Books to Read in 2018

"[Pink] unpicks compelling patterns... And he includes handy 'time-hacking' advice on how to put the insights divulged into practice." --Nature

"Daniel Pink is one of the few non-fiction authors alive today capable of filtering the work of so many scientific minds through his original human stories and onto the page. He is doggedly diligent in his academic research yet his examples are accessible... Like a long walk with a good, funny, wise friend in a leafy park, reading this book is time well spent." --Harper's Bazaar

"The breadth of the book's scope is impressive... Pink makes a point to end each chapter with takeaway points that readers can apply to their own lives. When is engaging, conversational and tightly edited, making it an easy yet important read." --Associated Press

"When contains a cornucopia of compelling information and insights." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"Helpful tips and insightful solutions." --Forbes

"Pink should change many people's understanding of timing with this book, which provides insights from little-known scientific studies in an accessible way... By the book's end, readers will be thinking much more carefully about how they divide up theirs days and organize their routines." --Publishers Weekly

"Consistently applying the principles laid out in the book could have dramatic impacts on one's life and on society." --Washington Post

"Solid science backed by sensible action points." --Kirkus

"Helpful, inspiring and thoughtful advice." --Booklist

"[When] reveals that timing really is everything... This marriage of research, stories and practical application is vintage Pink, helping us use science to improve our everyday lives." --BookPage

"Minutes are precious--and easier than ever to waste. Daniel H. Pink's deeply researched but never boring study could be a turning point. College students and business managers alike may find new ways to organize their schedules and ease difficult decisions by using the 'hidden pattern' of time to their advantage." --The Wall Street Journal

"A new thought-provoking book about time and timing." --Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette

"[Pink's] latest book, When, draws on research from psychology, biology and economics to explore how timing impacts every aspect of our lives." --EdSurge

"In this amazingly actionable and equally enthralling book, Dan tackles all the big timing questions." --LinkedIn
