Daniel Pink—an expert on business, work and behavior—was host and co-executive producer of National Geographic’s hit television series Crowd Control. Pink’s articles and essays have appeared in The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, The New Republic, Slate and various other publications. For the last six years, Pink has been named one of Thinker50’s top 15 business thinkers, and his TED Talk on the science of motivation is among the ten most-watched Ted Talks of all time. Pink currently serves on the advisory boards of RiseSmart, Betterment Institutional, Heleo and Hubspot.
Pink’s new book, When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, explores the importance of timing in decisions at work, at school and at home. He draws research from fields such as economics, social psychology and anesthesiology to determine the value we attribute to questions of “what”, “how” and “who” compared to questions of “when”. Pink reveals the importance of “when” decisions, asserting that the art of timing all comes down to science.
