Are we born into time? Or is time born into us? Most people seem to agree that our experience of time changes depending on our mood or circumstance. “Time flies when you’re having fun” (as the saying goes), while in times of difficulty or boredom, each minute may seem to creep slowly by. In Why Time Flies: A Mostly Scientific Exploration, science writer Alan Burdick (The New Yorker) takes readers on a witty and meditative exploration of the human relationship with time. “This book blew my mind,” says Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit. Burdick will share his discoveries about how time works and how we perceive it.
