by Stefan Klein

Making sense of life’s scarcest commodity.

Our modern lives are ruled by minutes and hours. We race from one thing to the next, all of us believing on some level that a mysterious cosmic ‘time’ is ticking on. And it’s always in short supply.

But is the time we live by really like that? Could there in fact be another, alternative version entwined with the official one? Here Stefan Klein explores the hidden story of time, looking at everything from when the Now becomes Then to the tribe which sees the future backwards, from when sex is best to why the years seem to speed by as we grow old. And he reveals how we can learn to live in harmony with the secret clock within us, altering our perceptions to transform our lives.

To be enjoyed in the morning or the evening (depending on your body clock), this book will make you think the next time you check your watch – and maybe even slow down a little.
