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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Pink (To Sell Is Human, 2013; Drive, 2010) integrates multidisciplinary theories and studies from psychology, decision sciences, neurosciences, and economics to provide useful guidance and framework for readers to understand how good decisions can be made through deliberate timing. Pink explains how to maximize the potential of timing in everyday life by drawing on case examples in everything from NCAA sports to biological studies. Making this even more useful as a self-help guide, in every other chapter, Pink offers snippets from his Time Hacker's Handbook activities, tools, and recommendations that will help readers identify their habits, improve their decision-making timing, and manage their schedules more effectively. Both those seeking this as a business resource and general readers interested in social psychology, time management, personal development, and decision making will find helpful, inspiring, and thoughtful advice from Pink.--Pun, Raymond Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Pink (To Sell Is Human) should change many people's understanding of timing with this book, which provides insights from little-known scientific studies in an accessible way. He quickly piques readers' interest by introducing seemingly inexplicable patterns: why are prisoners eligible for parole more likely to get a favorable ruling from a judicial panel earlier in the day? Why are adolescents who start school before 8 a.m. at an academic disadvantage? Why are there more complications from anesthesia in the afternoon? The explanations come from research about "the effect of the time of day" on people's thoughts and emotions, which began over a century ago, and which is being refined further now that social media platforms provide a wealth of data that can be analyzed from a chronological perspective. An analysis of millions of tweets from around the world, for instance, revealed a pattern that crossed continents and ethnic groups: "Tweeters felt active, engaged, and hopeful" in the morning and early evening. This is just one of the many findings with practical implications that Pink lays out in the "Time Hacker's Handbook," short sections that follow each chapter. By the book's end, readers will be thinking much more carefully about how they divide up their days and organize their routines. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
