9780738212562: The Secret Pulse of Time: Making Sense of Life's Scarcest Commodity

Popular science at its very best, The Secret Pulse of Time awakens us to and empowers us with the idea that time is far more at our disposal than we have previously realized. Award-winning journalist Stefan Klein whose previous book, The Science of Happiness, is a longtime international bestseller here provides what are essentially operating instructions” for time. Through a combination of original investigation and reportage, personal revelation, and a commanding presentation of scientific research (among disciplines including brain physiology, social psychology, philosophy, and Einsteinian physics), The Secret Pulse of Time teaches readers not only to better master time but also to understand why they so often fail to do so.

About the Author:

Stefan Klein, Ph.D., is one of Europe's leading science journalists and writers. Author of The Science of Happiness, he was awarded the Georg von Holtzbrink Prize for Scientific Journalism. He lives in Berlin, Germany.

Review:

"The author of the best-selling Science of Happiness now tackles time, approaching the topic from many angles: physiology of circadian rhythms, psychology of memory and perception of time, and physics of relativistic time. His epilog then moves toward self-help by applying the points made in the book to propose some tips for time management. Despite the breadth with which Klein addresses the subject, there is still depth to his discussions, which are well supported by cited research. There is a substantial body of work on time management and commentary on the increasing speed at which we live, but this title is unique in addressing questions such as how we perceive time and why we often feel we don't have enough of it. Recommended for all general science collections." -- Library Journal

"Time [has] new meaning in this book based on aspects of all the sciences." -- Desert Morning News

"Time is a fundamental component of the mind and the brain. Our experience of the passing of time varies dramatically, and yet precise timing is crucial for communication between nerves in the brain. In this book Stefan Klein presents a most engaging account of the latest research on all these aspects of time. We all want to use our time better. Reading this book would be a good start to this endeavor." -- Chris Frith, author of Making up the Mind

"[Klein's] scientific approach is an important difference between The Secret Pulse of Time and pop psychology books that simply tell one how to think and behave. What we're getting here is good advice validated by cutting edge data and research...Klein's book won't stop time's assault, but it's a good bet that The Secret Pulse of Time will encourage readers to fight back." -- Providence Journal
