The list author says: "A big list of excellent books that cover every aspect of decision-making. Plus a few not-so-great ones that nevertheless offer some unique value. The focus is on practical, non-technical (both not necessarily "popular science") books that talk about real-world human decision-making and timing in both right-brained and left-brained ways. This list will evolve and grow quite a bit in the next few months, so check back frequently."
"Rifkin's book is one of the most interesting looks at the diversity of time perceptions across different cultures. His survey is at once prosaic and empirical on the one hand, and qualitative and literary on the other. He intersperses his statistics-based analysis with lyrical interludes, meditating on things such as the relation between waiting and status relationships."
"Rifkin's book is a very politicized take on time, positing "time wars" between the ever-accelerating culture of time in the age of computers and the Web, on the one hand, and slower models of time. Curiously, unlike other leftist writers, he actually defends traditional 'clock' time, which others see as being equally unnatural, compared to natural rhythms and social, event time."
"Griffiths book is frankly, not very good. In fact it is quite terrible for the most part, written with a certain amount of shrill feminism. Still, it is a study in how political time can get, and provides some insight into how time can be viewed by those who've been marginalized by the march to dominance of clock time and its descendants"
"A somewhat flawed but insightful book on subjective time perception and attitudes. The book is based on a survey called the Zimbardo Time Perspective Inventory which you can take online. It assumes a rather naive framing of time, however."
