Summary
  • Illuminates the scientific factors that shape the hidden patterns of a day and challenge scheduled activities, drawing on research in the disciplines of psychology, biology, and economics to share practical advice and anecdotes for promoting a richer, more engaged life
  • Our lives are a never-ending stream of decisions: when to start a business, schedule a class, get serious about a person. Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork. Pink reveals how to use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule, and the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers, or get married. He distills cutting-edge research and data on timing into a fascinating, readable narrative that gives readers compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives
