I found the development of man's view of time from prehistory to present and its similarity to present changes one develops in his view as we mature. It also brings up the concept of arrested development of an individuals time view and its affect on personality and ability to function in society. Also the role of one's culture in development of a time view

Authors Zimbardo and Boyd translate their psychological theories of time into how-to tips for attaining happiness. Identifying six main time-perspectives, they demonstrate the effect that the use or overuse of these perspectives has on all areas of life, from retirement to romantic relationships to suicide bombing. The book compares other psychological theories of behavior with their own, arguing that attitudes towards time as the true answer to these psychological inquiries. Combining personal anecdotes, data from psychological perspectives and self-evaluative exercises, the authors help the readers make time work for them in a quick-paced, interactive manual. The Time Paradox is an informative read for both psychology aficionados and the curious self-improver alike. A memory trigger for the Pasts, an engaging read for the Presents, and a useful tool for the Futures. Some of the book's most striking evidence comes from a discussion of business and the future oriented go-getters. Zimbardo and Boyd ask the question, "Why bother earning money you can never enjoy the fruits of your labor?" The authors don't dispute the usefulness of money; they rather assert that time is our most valuable resource, not wealth.

Zimbardo and Boyd write about Time Perspective and how our quality of life and happiness is so greatly effected by that perspective. It started very simply and built to more complexity. Many books are really done in about forty pages, but this book seemed to get more interesting as the book progressed.
