But these days we are tampering with time in ways that affect how we live, the textures of our experience, and our very sense of what it is to be human. What is the nature of time in our time? Why is it that even as we live longer than ever before, we feel that.
The book discusses time in the context of the body, the mind, culture and our time. Some of the author’s points were just interesting to read, and some sparked a whole new cascade of reflections and conversations. Who knows, you might be inspired by another culture’s viewpoint on time, and apply it to your life and career. Food for thought! Book information: Title: Time. Publication Date: October 27, 2009. Series: Big Ideas/Small Books.

Her books include Time, Lost in Translation, Exit Into History and After Such Knowledge
