New York, New York: Columbia Univ Pr, 2006. New York: Columbia, 2006. First Edition. 8vo. Hard cover, 182 pp. "Using everyday examples from around the world, psychologist Sarah Norgate here unravels both the mental and biological mysteries of our relationships with time and provides a clear understanding of the links among behavior, brain, and genes. Norgate begins by musing on the origins of our obsession with punctuality; the conflicting practices of rushing and taking things slowly; and economy-driven proverbs from highly industrialized nations and how they differ from beliefs and attitudes in more rural areas. Norgate then considers the biological effects of irregular hours, night shifts, cram sessions, and round-the-clock consumption." New book in new dust jacket, protected with a mylar cover.. First Edition. Hard Cover. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
