Abstract:

-- Drive Everyone knows that timing is everything. But we don't know much about timing itself.

Timing, it's often assumed, is an art. In W -- 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.
