WhenByPinkDaniel Pink changes the way we live by changing how we think. From To Sell Is Human to Drive to A Whole New Mind, Pink’s enormously influential, New York Times-bestselling books illuminate the hidden forces that affect our lives in major ways. His highly anticipated new book, WHEN: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, shows us the essential keys to timing our decisions and actions so that we can thrive both personally and professionally.

We constantly ask ourselves how to do something. But how often do we ask when? Our lives are a continuous stream of “when” decisions: when to change jobs, when to hold meetings, when to start a relationship.

Compelling and instructive, Pink’s potent insights, delightful storytelling, and extraordinarily useful takeaways make WHEN a vital read for everyone. With cutting-edge research distilled into captivating prose, WHEN will change how you think about your past, present, and future…   His books have won multiple awards and have been translated into 35 languages.

This program, held in the Glenbard South Auditorium at 7pm,  will be running at the same time as Eugenia Cheng’s Math, Music and the Mind.
These free programs are open to the public.
