Daniel H. Pink، the #1 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 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، readable narrative packed with irresistible stories and practical takeaways that give readers compelling insights into how we can live richer، more engaged lives.

Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review An Amazon Best Book of January 2018: How many of us come back from a lunch break with the best of intentions for an industrious end to the day، only to suffer the dreaded post-lunch slump? Pink lays out the scientific case for this phenomena، a peak، trough، and then recovery of energy levels and productivity seen in people worldwide، across all cultures and geographies. By being aware of one’s own chronotype، i.e. when they tend to experience peak and diminished performance، (for the record، I’m writing this review right before lunch)، Pink argues readers can be more effective in choosing when to tackle a new project at work، when to give a big presentation، or even when to schedule a surgery. --Matt Fyffe
