Phillip Zimbardo and Phillip Boyd - authors of The Time Paradox - invite us to improve our relationship with time and change our lives. In a series of 3 paradoxes - "that shape our lives and our destinies" - they reveal that time can work for us rather than against us. This offers us opportunities to consciously choose the role that time plays in our professional success and personal happiness.

Individual attitudes toward time are learned through personal experience, yet collectively attitudes toward time influence national destinies.
