Author Daniel Pink

Daniel Pink’s TED Talk on the science of motivation is one of the 10 most-watched TED Talks of all time.

Daniel Pink’s provocative, bestselling books, including Drive, A Whole New Mind and To Sell Is Human, attempt to change the way we live by changing how we think. In celebration of the January release of his latest book, When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, the Tattered Cover Book Store joins the Enrichment Program in welcoming Daniel Pink to the DU campus. In When, Pink reveals the scientific secrets about timing our actions and decisions in order to live more fulfilling lives. We’re constantly figuring out how to do things, but do we ever consider when to do them, or even contemplate that timing could be a decisive factor in the outcome? Why should you never have surgery in the afternoon? Why is lunch actually the most important meal of the day? Why are naps (and school recess) important? And why are sports teams that are slightly behind at halftime more likely to win? Using cutting-edge research and data from the fields of anthropology, biology, economics and psychology, Pink shows us how to leverage the underlying patterns and rhythms of the day to our benefit, resulting in a richer, more engaged existence—and, in the process, he proves that timing is not an art after all, but instead a science. After Pink’s fascinating and sure-to-be enlightening talk, you’ll truly understand the meaning of “timing is everything!” The presentation will conclude with an audience Q&A and post-program book signing.
