Description
Our relationship to time is complex and paradoxical; time stands still, and time also flies. Tomorrow is another day, yet there's no time like the present. And despite all of our time-saving devices, Americans feel that they have less leisure time than ever. Health and finance writer Lesley Alderman encourages readers to ponder time used and time spent in this browsable and entertaining survey. Considering such periods as how long, on average, it takes us to find a new mate, digest a hamburger, compose a symphony, or get ready for work, she challenges our beliefs and urges us to consider how—and why—some things get faster, some things slow down, and some things—like the need for seven to eight hours of sleep—never change.
