Saving time

13.60

Our daily experience, dominated by the corporate clock that so many of us contort ourselves to fit inside, is destroying us. It wasn’t built for people, it was built for profit. This is a book that tears open the seams of reality as we know it – the way we experience time itself – and rearranges it, reimagining a world not centered around work, the office clock, or the profit motive.

Description

**THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER**

‘The visionary author of How to Do Nothing returns to challenge the notion that ‘time is money.’ . . . Expect to feel changed by this radical way of seeing’ Esquire

We’re living on the wrong clock. And it’s destroying us.

Our life is dominated by the corporate clock that so many of us contort ourselves to fit inside. It wasn’t devised for people, but for profit. We need to embrace a whole new concept of time: one that gives us and our planet a brighter future.

In Saving Time, Jenny Odell, bestselling author of How to Do Nothing, examines how we got to the point where time became money. Taking inspiration from the pre-industrial, ecological and geological rhythms of our world, she offers us radical new models to live by that make a more humane, more hopeful existence seem possible.

Now is our moment to rethink. And if we do, time might just save us.
