On Time: Finding Your Pace in a World Addicted to Fast [9780008189983]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

On Time by Catherine Blyth reveals why time sped up, why there never seems to be enough, and how to make it yours again.

We have more time than ever: each one of us can expect 1000 months on this planet if we're lucky.

So why do we feel time-poor?

Our world is addicted to fast and we have become its servant. Instead of grasping the liberating potential of technology, many of us are locked into a doomed race to outpace hurry.

In this book, Blyth combines cutting-edge research from neuroscience and psychology with accessible stories - from Leonardo Da Vinci to Usain Bolt, Aristotle to Anna Wintour, and Kant to Keith Richards - to reveal timeless truths about humanity's finest invention.

Angry, witty and enlightening, On Time is a handbook for navigating a fast-forward world that asks the questions productivity guides ignore.

* Why do some hours trudge while others sprint by?

* How do bright colours, fast food and rapid breathing affect our tempo?

* How does autonomy take the stress out of pressure?

* What are the hours that suit which activities best?

Stop clock-watching, self-reproach and quit chasing white rabbits. Time is humanity's finest invention: with these small practical steps, it can become your servant.

AUTHOR: Catherine Blyth has written for publications including The Times, Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph, Spectator, Elle, Glamour and Daily Mail, and appeared on a variety of shows for radio and television.
