Reviews

Thought-provoking.--Susan Salter Reynolds "Los Angeles Times "
Very readable and intriguing.--Hawke's Bay Today
This informative first book by Sarah Norgate, a psychologist, looks at how we relate to the fourth dimension, from the millisecond precision of a tennis player returning a serve to the personal narratives we each build.... An agreeable blend of psychology, neuroscience, sociology, and anthropology.--The Independent
Fascinating.... The message here is the wise use of time for work, life and sleep.--Times Educational Supplement
In Beyond 9 to 5 Sarah Norgate investigates everything from how we perceive time to how long we've got on Earth to enjoy it.... [She] raises some interesting questions.--New Scientist
Rich in intelligently contrasted and contextualized data, Norgate's academic study skillfully captures how world communities differ in their relationship to time.--Publishers Weekly
