Unable to forget Tom, or go through with the wedding, Poppy runs off to London. Her new life and colorful friends are anything but predictable.

Daniel H. Pink, the bestselling author of Drive and To Sell is Human, unlocks the scientific secrets to good timing to help you flourish at work, at school, and at home. Everyone knows that timing is everything. But we don’t know much about timing itself. Our lives are a never-ending stream of ‘when’ decisions: when to start a business, schedule a class, get serious about a person. Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork. Timing, it’s often assumed, is an art. In When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, Pink shows that timing is really a science. Drawing on a rich trove of research from psychology, biology, and economics, Pink reveals how best to live, work, and succeed. How can we use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule? Why do certain breaks dramatically improve student test scores? How can we turn a stumbling beginning into a fresh start? Why should we avoid going to the hospital in the afternoon? Why is singing in time with other people as good for you as exercise? And what is the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers or get married? In When, Pink distils cutting-edge research and data on timing and synthesises them into a fascinating, readable narrative packed with irresistable stories and practical takeaways that gives readers compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives. Daniel H. Pink is the author of five provocative books—including three long-running New York Times bestsellers, A Whole New Mind, Drive, and To Sell Is Human. His books have been translated into thirty-five languages and have sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. He lives in Washington DC with his wife and their three children. ‘Pink’s fourth book should be compulsory reading for bosses, educators, and schedulers, for policymakers, company executives, and performers, but there is plenty in this fascinating book that the average person will find applicable to their lives. This is a quick read that rewards time spent with some excellent insights.’ BookMooch ‘Artfully blend(s) anecdotes, insights, and studies from the social sciences into a frothy blend of utility and entertainment.’ Bloomberg on To Sell is Human ‘Full of aha! moments...timely, original, thoroughly engaging, deeply humane.’ strategy + business on To Sell is Human ‘Excellent...radical, surprising, and undeniably true.’ Harvard Business Review blog on To Sell is Human ‘An appreciation of time, some might say an obsession to the fraction of a second, seems to set humans apart from all other species...Despite the subtitle, this book is not about the scientific measurement of time, but about relative time, revealing the regular patterns of people’s lives they so often adhere to, unaware, and with no idea why.’ Otago Daily Times

An unlikely couple is brought together under circumstances that defy all reason in this timeless romance in the Harrigan Family series from New York Times bestselling author Catherine Anderson. Tragedy has struck the Harrigans—Quincy’s beloved sister-in-law Loni is gravely ill and nearing death. Quincy, like his brothers, feels helpless to save her, and the clock is ticking. Then, with perfect timing, a winsome red-haired woman named Ceara O’Ceallaigh mysteriously appears on Quincy’s property and insists that Loni can be cured. Only Quincy, she says, as the sole remaining Harrigan bachelor, can make it happen—by marrying Ceara. To Quincy, Ceara is a charming and quite likely deranged spinner of dreams who can’t prove she’s telling the truth. But how can he pass up any attempt to restore Loni to health? Against all better judgment, he decides to marry Ceara. Maybe he’s making the worst mistake of his life. Or maybe he’s opening himself up to possibilities that will send him on a miraculous journey toward enough love to last forever. From the Paperback edition.

Accidentally transported to the future, caterer Crik escapes house-arrest with Tepper, his possible distant descendant. While pursued by volunteer vigilante Voltak, goofball Crik explores Geotopia-where buildings grow, people incorporate animal powers, smart phones know it all, and vehicles defy gravity-seeking clues. If he can discover, understand, and articulate the future's public policy that works right for everybody, he can prove he was their founder, the lone agent of change who put society on its path toward universal prosperity and harmony with nature. If he fails to convince the Futurite Authorities, they wouldn't return their unexpected visitor to the exact second he left-something their law requires-to the moment when a hail of gunfire was bearing down on the luckless caterer and college dropout...would they?
