Drawing on the latest research from the fields of psychology, neuroscience,and biology, and using original research on the way memory shapes our understanding of time, the author delves into the mysteries of time perception, offering insight into how to manage our time more efficiently, how to speed time up and slow it down at will, how to plan for the future with more accuracy, and how to use the warping of time to our own benefit.
