Our lives are a never-ending stream of decisions: when to start a business, schedule a class, get serious about a person. Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork. Pink reveals how to use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule, and the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers, or get married. He distills cutting-edge research and data on timing into a fascinating, readable narrative that gives readers compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives.

In-depth and informative! I was introduced to a new way of thinking on the concept of time.

When is a worthwhile read especially for the generation Xers and the millennials. It contains the kind of advice one would get from a good mentor. I will recommend it to my younger friends and relatives.

’ve shared more information with teachers about timing and learning than I’ve ever shared before from a book. I wish the book had been available before I retired. There is lots of good information for people in any career.

This book is for people who have no common sense and are not in tune with their own bodies or personality. Book should have been whittled down as a magazine article!

Informative and fascinating in places, but a bit drawn out and overly elaborated in others. The "self-help" chapters seemed redundant and read as if they had been added to make the book a marketable length.

This book is a compilation on multiple studies on chronobiology and its manifestations in other areas like psychology, anthropology and team dynamics. While this book is clearly designed with the mass market in mind, it still offer some good insights on how to apply the concepts of circadian rhythms to everyday life.

If you are looking for a more in-depth, scientific based literature about chronotherapy I highly suggest to read the following: Terman, Michael | Chronotherapy - Resetting your Inner Clock to Boost Mood, Alertness, and Quality Sleep.

More affirming than surprising. A more entertaining read as a self help book.

I feel like I've read many of the issues/suggestions presented here before, but I also feel like this is the first time they've "clicked" for me to the point where I changed my actions. Specifically, I've come to better understand when I'm most productive and focused, and have started scheduling my focused vs "a monkey could do it" tasks based on this understanding. I've also started to take a quick screen-free rest at my lowest part of the day (3-3:30) as often as can be accomodated. I feel healthier and more productive.

Pink's attempt to create a "When-To" literature, along the lines of popular "How-To" books. Some of the information is very interesting--such as learning your own circadian rhythms (lark, owl, etc.), when to schedule hospital operations, and why early school openings are so difficult for teenagers--and some of it gets far too structured for my tastes. Key takeaway: humans, just like other living organisms, have optimal times.
