Beyond 9 to 5: Your Life in Time

By Norgate, Sarah

London: Phoenix Orion Books , 2006. ....Tight square and clean, 182 pages, with diagrams and illustrations. "Why do proverbs from Sicily reinforce the importance of taking things slowly, while poverbs from highly industrialised countries are economically driven. (Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today)? In 'Beyond 9 to 5' Sarah Norgate compares the 'clock time' culture of westernised society, with the 'event time' cultures of Latin America, the Mediterranean and the Middle East, and lays bare the realities of the 'work-life balance'. She reveals babies' talents in timing skills as well as unmasking how various personal factors - like choice of time-concept, genes, early experience and lifestyle - combine with societal influences to shape the nature of our relationships with time in adult life."
