Common Knowledge



Another day, another disappointing "personal development" book. You'd think I'd know better by now, but I still persist. My bad, I guess.

I had assumed there would be practical advice on how to motivate myself in a variety of circumstances. Yet upon picking up this book, it quickly became apparent that this was not the case. The content felt very repetitive and unhelpful when it came to understanding how to really drive results in my own life, or even in my career.

The focus was on business -- and perhaps if you're a CEO looking for new ways to motivate your people, you might find something of use here (though if you've read more than a couple of books in this genre, all the advice offered here will only serve to reinforce what you already know.)

I really enjoyed this book! In addition to the wonderful storytelling component and the multitude of examples and case studies used to illustrate salient points, I particularly appreciated the "Time Hacker's Handbook" sections at the end of each chapter.

I'd recommend WHEN to anyone wanting to learn more about the science of timing and true productivity. The book is incredibly well researched, written in a vivid and engaging style, and enormously practical.

There's hope for touchy-feely folk like me, according to Pink and his analysis of work in the 21st century. No more apologizing for my right-brained leanings or feeling confused by the learned left-brain survival tactics that have kept me "respectable" as an academic. Now, all I need to do is figure out how the left and right come together for me in a better professional iteration and my whole new mind.
