Publisher's Weekly Review
Zogby shares the intriguing results of Time Perception and interviews with experts in the field. Having grown up in a civil war, Zogby escaped death on multiple occasions and witnessed the deaths of close friends; these experiences gave him an appreciation for how precious time is and a desire to somehow slow it down.
 
Zogby begins by describing how people sense time, before delving into brain biology. He also discusses how time is limited to the speed at which the brain captures and processes sensory information. 

The middle chapters address the many factors that influence one's experience of time: among them, mindfulness, extreme alertness, emotional control, personality type, and the use of drugs. 

In the final chapters, Zogby delves into remembrance, "mental time travel," and the aging brain before concluding with thoughts on living in the moment and for a prosperous, long time. 
Zogby's endeavor is a worthwhile one, and his thoughtful explanations and meditations have a wide appeal. - Publisher's Weekly

Midwest Book Review
Many books discuss time management; but few discuss the nature of the time being managed, or the mechanics of how to alter it. Fewer yet include a range of psychological reflections for introverts and extroverts alike, discussions of personal choices in how to spend time, or tips on how to handle memories and aging brains that perceive time as 'slipping away'.
 
Readers who anticipate a self-help approach or time management guide alone may be surprised and initially stymied by the healthy dose of supporting science and psychology behind these suggestions; but given how many lighter (and less informative) approaches are on the market, it's pleasing to finally see a book that intermingles self-help with science and delves into specifics at points where too many others would generalize. The result is no light discussion, but an in-depth read that pairs insights on evolutionary processes and the latest research with pointers on how readers can make the most out of time.

This book is the 'next level' in time management that many have been looking for: a concrete approach that pairs insights on time perception with tips on how to alter and better handle time's challenges. 
D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Readers' Favorite Reviews
The Power of Time Perception by Jean Paul Zogby is an extremely thought-provoking and, in some ways, startling book about the fundamental nature and reality of time. 

I loved reading The Power of Time Perception and, in fact, there is so much information to take in and ponder over that I would probably re-read certain sections again. I was very surprised to realize how much we take time for granted and think of it as a fundamental aspect of reality when, in fact, it may or may not be so. But what Jean Paul shows through this book is that one can learn to make every second count when needed and, basically, make the most of the life that is given. 
I also loved hearing about the research conducted in the neurological and scientific fields presented in this book. I could then apply this new knowledge to the metaphysical questions regarding time and everything made more sense. A very well researched book that I would highly recommend! 
-- Gisela Dixon for Readers' Favorite
