Daniel H. Pink, the bestselling 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 quite a job, switch careers or get married?

`Excellent...radical, surprising, and undeniably true.' * Harvard Business Review blog on To Sell is Human * `Full of aha! moments...timely, original, thoroughly engaging, deeply humane.' * strategy + business on To Sell is Human * `Artfully blend(s) anecdotes, insights, and studies from the social sciences into a frothy blend of utility and entertainment.' * Bloomberg on To Sell is Human * `Pink's fourth book should be compulsory reading for bosses, educators, and schedulers, for policymakers, company executives, and performers, but there is plenty in this fascinating book that the average person will find applicable to their lives. This is a quick read that rewards time spent with some excellent insights.' -- BookMooch
