Inhaltsangabe

Start the new year with the instant New York Times best-seller.

Number-one Wall Street Journal Business best-seller.

Instant Washington Post best-seller.

"Brims with a surprising amount of insight and practical advice." (The Wall Street Journal)

Daniel H. Pink, the number one best-selling 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 narrative packed with irresistible stories and practical takeaways that give listeners compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives.

Kritikerstimmen

"Pink is as comfortable behind the mic as he is with his subject matter as he reveals that it really is all about timing.... With a popular TED talk and a long list of public speaking engagements on his resume, Pink is more polished than many author narrators, and his high-energy style is infectious." (AudioFile)

Strong beginning, less relevant towards the end

Some good takeaways from the first chapters. E.g. I learned how to live more in sync with the waves of the day, considering chronobiology. Or why you should not drink coffee in the first 60-90 mins after getting up in the morning. And I noticed that morning exercise is a great mood booster, more than at any other time of the day.
The second half of the audiobook was less relevant and I do not see so much benefit of the exercises and advice, e.g. how to synchronize more with others.

Nice introduction into the topic

Daniel Pink has a great talent of telling compelling stories from scientific research. This book revealed many topics to me which I haven't heard about before.
