Join 1982 Bexley High School alumnus Daniel H. Pink, the #1 bestselling author of Drive and To Sell Is Human, for an author talk and book signing of his recently released book, When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing to be held at Bexley High School’s Schottenstein Theater. In this exclusive ticketed event, the author will share the scientific secrets to good timing to help you flourish at work, at school, and at home. While we know timing is everything, we don't know much about timing itself. Yet, our lives are a never-ending stream of "when" decisions: when to start a business, when to schedule a class, when to get serious about a person. In When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, Pink shows that timing, while often assumed an art, is really a science.
This exclusive central Ohio event is free to students with a valid student ID. Tickets at $10 can be obtained at Gramercy Books, 2424 E. Main Street, and can be applied toward the purchase of any of Pink’s books.
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.
