Saving Time

Discovering a Life Beyond the Clock

«It is in the gap between present and future, where outcomes are not yet determined, that Jenny Odell enters with her paradigm-destroying new book ... [A] grand, eclectic, wide-ranging work»

New York Times

**THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER**

'To read it is ... to experience how freedom might feel' Oliver Burkeman
'The visionary author of How to Do Nothing returns ... Expect to feel changed by this radical way of seeing' Esquire

We're living on the wrong clock. And it's destroying us.

Our life is dominated by the corporate clock that so many of us contort ourselves to fit inside. It wasn't devised for people, but for profit. We need to embrace a whole new concept of time: one that gives us and our planet a brighter future.

In Saving Time, Jenny Odell, bestselling author of How to Do Nothing, examines how we got to the point where time became money. Taking inspiration from the pre-industrial, ecological and geological rhythms of our world, she offers us radical new models to live by that make a more humane, more hopeful existence seem possible.

Now is our moment to rethink. And if we do, time might just save us.

Anmeldelser

«It is in the gap between present and future, where outcomes are not yet determined, that Jenny Odell enters with her paradigm-destroying new book ... [A] grand, eclectic, wide-ranging work»

New York Times

«In a work both magisterial and elliptical, Odell takes on the concept of 'time' from every conceivable angle ... This is both an irresistible big-idea book an a guide to rethinking a burning world»

LA Times

«A penetrating, provocative investigation into the subject of time - how to understand and live with it - on both an individual and societal level ... impressive»

Shelf Awareness

«Temporal structure has its comforts, particularly following a tumultuous three years ... That yo-you effect [of the last few years] drew me to Saving Time, Jenny Odell's sharp book tracing the cultural forces that shape our conception of time»

Laura Regensdorf, Vanity Fair

«Odell fights to provide us with an alternative way to experience the time we have»
