Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews the author of a popular business book.

This week Whitfield spoke to bestselling author Daniel Pink about his book “When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing”.

Description on Amazon:

Daniel Pink, the number one bestselling author of “Drive” and “To Sell Is Human”, unlocks the scientific secrets to good timing to help you flourish at work, at school and at home.

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, get serious about a person…

Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork.

Timing, it's often assumed, is an art.

In “When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing” Pink shows that timing is really a science.

Drawing on a rich trove of research from psychology, biology and economics; Pink reveals how best to live, work and succeed.

  • How can we use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule?

  • Why do certain breaks dramatically improve student test scores?

  • How can we turn a stumbling beginning into a fresh start?

  • Why should we avoid going to the hospital in the afternoon?

  • Why is singing in time with other people as good for you as exercise?

  • What is the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers or get married?

In “When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing”, Pink distils cutting-edge research and data on timing and synthesises 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.
