Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184529050X, Paperback)Ever since the equation Time = Money came into use, Western society has bought the notion of 'saving time' and, by implication, money. Living in a world ruled by the clock, and living longer, with a host of technological advances designed to help us, we still often end up running harder to stay in the same place - and running out of time. Bodil Jonsson shows how the arrival of measured, accurate timekeeping became first our tool then our master. Neither pure philosophy, still less physics or a business text on time management, her inspiring book has elements of all three. With brevity, humour and insight, she encourages a new and positive relationship with time, to make it not our traditional enemy but our friend.

Western society, and increasingly the rest of the world too, is ruled by the clock. Jonsson observes how the arrival of measured, accurate timekeeping became first our tool, and then our master. We now live longer on average than ever before, yet most of us feel we have no time.
