When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing
by Daniel H. Pink
Riverhead Books, 2017. 272 pgs. Nonfiction
Does it matter when you start a new goal? A new relationship? A new job? Does it matter what time of day you tackle different types of tasks? How about when you should visit a hospital or have surgery? The answer to all these questions is a resounding YES, according to Daniel H. Pink it matters a great deal. Pink has reviewed cutting edge research and data to determine how we can best schedule our lives to optimize our success and happiness.
I love books that use science to explain life. The author’s stories and illustrations are entertaining and convincing (not that I needed a lot of convincing to know that naps are awesome). I particularly enjoy the way Pink writes about his own personal feelings about the discoveries he makes. You feel like you are on a journey with him, picking up little jewels of insight as you travel from page to page.
