SAL Presents

Daniel H. Pink is the author of several provocative, bestselling books about business, work, and behavior.

All tickets (except Student, Create-Your-Own Subscriptions, and complimentary tickets) include a copy of Daniel Pink’s new book When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing.

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? And what is the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers, or get married? In When, Pink distills cutting-edge research and data on timing and synthesizes 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.

Daniel H. Pink is the author of six books, including the long-running New York Times bestsellers Drive and A Whole New Mind. His books have been translated into 33 languages and have sold more than a million copies in the United States alone. He lives with his family in Washington, DC.
