I'm a fan of Daniel Pink's writing. I've thoroughly enjoyed the other books of his I've read and I thoroughly enjoy this one.

This book is all about timing.

When is it good to attack that analytical task?

When is it good to take a break? What should you do to make a break great?

When should you go to the doctor?

How do you get a group in sync?

How should you end your work day?

These are some of the questions answered in this book.

The book generally has a chapter giving examples and referencing research followed by a chapter with concrete recommendations.

This book confirmed some things I've observed in my own daily rhythm and echoes some suggestions I've heard before.

It was good and short. If you've spent time analyzing your day, this isn't going to change your life but it is still enjoyable. It might confirm that those short 20 minute naps are the way to go. I'd recomend this book.
