Wait: The Art and Science of Delay by Frank Partnoy is an excellent discussion of the why going faster isn’t always better. We’ve all been absorbed into a modern nanoculture “cult of speed” and this book shows us why it may be better to slow down. The author illustrates the book with numerous examples from diverse activities and occupations including sports, stock trading, and dating as to why going slower is often more effective than going faster. There are a lot of supporting studies and info in this book and it reflects many similar points I made in Opening Minds. Highly recommended. (BTW, I’ve been reading this on my Nook ereader.)
