While a lot of good quality psychological research on the importance of time and ones time perspective is collated and presented, the authors do not always strike a successful balance between giving enough detail on the research to make the book meaningful, and not too much to make it akin to an academic publication - almost exclusively erring on providing too little detail in my opinion.
Some of the early chapters work better in this respect and up to a point the authors are to be applauded for not falling prey to the common temptation of organising chapters around a 'saying what they will say, saying it and then saying what they have said' approach. In other words, there is a minimum of in chapter repetition and for the first 200 pages or so, one also does not get the impression that each new chapter is just another way of saying the same thing.
Later on in the book, one very much feels that some of the fields, to which they apply their time perspective analysis are a bit tedious or even far fetched. Here, it would certainly be helpful to either add detail to solidify the case for the relevance of the examples and fields discussed, or simply to omit them.Read more ›
This book has an honesty and directness that is trademark of Zimbardo's thinking.
