Opinion polls show that people complain more about a lack of time than a lack of money, greenery, or freedom. Could this be the evil of our era? Jean-Louis Servan-Schreiber wrote those words in his original 1984 edition of The Art of Time, but they are just as true in our new techno-congested millennium. Now fully revised and updated, with a new chapter on time in the 21st century, Servan-Schreiber's elegant treatise illuminates the causes of our frequent misuse of time and offers a key to unlocking the "why" behind people's busy schedules. His goal is to incite readers to rediscover their true needs and priorities and begin to live their time instead of simply spending it.
