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, or get serious about a person. Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork.

Timing, it’s often assumed, is an art. To the contrary, Daniel Pink—the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Drive and To Sell Is Human—shows that timing is really a science. He unlocks the science behind good timing to help you flourish at work, at school, and at home in When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing.

How can we use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule? Why should we avoid going to the hospital in the afternoon? What is the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers, or get married? Drawing on research from psychology, biology, and economics, Pink reveals how best to live, work, and succeed.

In When, Pink distills cutting-edge research and data on timing and synthesizes them into practical takeaways to live richer, more engaged lives. In conversation with Shankar Vedantam, NPR’s social science correspondent and host of the Hidden Brain podcast and radio show. Book signing to follow.
