    Time is a universal commodity yet so many of us don’t understand or utilize it properly. Now, thanks to over six years of research, Jean Paul Zogby is here to help us harness the power of time perception.Starting with the psychology of how we perceive time, Zogby explains how we sense time, how our brains perceive time, what factors influence our discernment of time, how our personality and emotions determine how we observe time, how our memories alter time and how we can make every second count. Zogby isn’t basing his premise on his beliefs but on scientific research. Blending physics, biology, psychology and personal experience, Zogby teaches us how to quantify time and how best to manage it. It’s not about making lists or eating healthy, it’s all in our awareness of how time works. We have the power within and it’s all a matter of perception.While there are a few concepts communicated in this book I don’t agree with, the overall theme I wholeheartedly support. Extremely well written, The Power of Time Perception takes time management to an almost spiritual level. Make every second count … a mantra I fully endorse. Highly recommend!Favorite Quote: “We live in the moment when we stop living in the past, enjoy the present and look forward to the future.”My Rating: 4.5 starsThis review first appeared:

    Amazing Book!The Power of Time Perception: Control the Speed of Time to Make Every Second Count Kindle Edition by Jean Paul Zogby is a fantastic book that explains fully and with an impressive simplicity and clarity on how the human brain understands and perceives time. Amazon rate system has five stars this book deserves ten stars!I thought I knew enough about brain though patterns but this book blew my mind away with the information and data that presents.Lots of examples and lots of references to scientists that present incredible information about the power and the perception time has upon us.It will help you recognize if you are a slow thinker or a fast thinker. Help you show you how to enjoy the moment and live in the moment.How to take control when you under emotional status, how to deal with yourself and situations when you feel fear, or you are angry or anxious, etc.This book is well researched and well written, it covers so much about how we deal with time and also through numerous examples makes sure that we understand the broad definitions that are expressed in this book.One example of how beautifully the writer makes his point is the fact that English-speaking people know time as a line that goes from left to right. The left side is the past the middle is the present, and the far right is the future.Until now I thought that all people think like that, but that is not the case, Arabic and Jewish speaking people write from right to left and perceive time exactly the different past is on the right side of the line and future on the left.Asian people write from top to bottom making them understand future as down and the past as up! Dozens of examples like that are spread out throughout the book making it fascinating, enjoyable and most important for me, mind expanding.If you want to understand how time works then this book is a must have.Highly Recommended.

    ‘You will be satisfied to watch it serenely unfold, taking pleasure in the feeling of having been able to fit several lifetimes into one.’Author Jean Paul Zogby is passionate about sharing what science has to say about our experience of time and ways to make every second count. Got your attention? Then read on for this is a very insightful book written by a writer, researcher, music composer, and real estate development expert who lives in Dubai while the CEO of a major construction project. Jean Paul seeks to help people understand why time speeds up as we grow older and how to make the most of it: he has spent time researching Time Perception in the fields of Neuroscience and Cognitive Psychology an brings that to the written page in this, his debut publication - THE POWER OF THE PERCEPTION OF TIME. Jean Paul explains the purpose of writing this book in his Preface – ‘Our perception of the speed of time has always intrigued me. We know from physics that time progresses at the same rate at all times, but that is not how it feels. Time certainly seems to speed up as we grow older. We find ourselves saying things like: ‘How is it nearly Christmas again?’ ‘Has it really been already four years since the last Football World Cup?’ There are of course many things other than age that affect our perception of time. Why does time fly when we are having fun and why does it drag when we are bored? Why does time seem to stand still during a car crash accident? For a long time, the nagging question in my mind has been: is there a way to slow down time to the speed it was running at when we were young? This book is about the psychology of time: how we subjectively perceive time in our lives, not the time as defined by physicists. It is about what seems to speed it up or slow it down; the things we can do to extend a moment of bliss or shorten a moment of pain. It is about how to make a vacation last longer; how to look back at a week, month, or year and be satisfied that it was time well spent. It is about how to slow down life so we can ‘live’ longer and do all the things we want to do. It is also about the limited time we spend on this rock that is floating in space, we call Earth. It is about those few decades that make up our life and how limited and precious they are. This is the ultimate purpose of this book; to make you aware of your own time, how precious it is, how fast it slips by, and ways to make the most of it.’Time – do we really consider the concept of time and how we perceive it and use it? Jean Paul divides this book into sections that take us step by step through an appreciation of Time - How Do We Experience Time? (The psychology of time perception, How do our brains receive reality?, Time – the ultimate illusion, Time distortions, What Factors Influence Our Time Experience? (Living in the moment, Time in slow motion, Taking control, What kind of person are you?, Messing with time), How Do We Perceive the Past and the Future? (A time to remember, Mental time travel, Time slipping away), and How To Make Every Second Count (Crafting the longest year of your life).’Indulge ‘time’ in digesting this book and everyday will seem more significant. Jean Paul Zogby has shared intelligent and sensitive insights into how we life with enhanced time. Highly Recommended.

    This is a book has answers that I have been waiting for, for a long time. I am amazed by the passage of time. There are times in life that I explicitly chose not to wear a watch (since the use of the mobile phone). Now I am back at wearing watches, since time on mobile phones does not really provides me the feeling of knowing the time due to distractions by other apps. Knowing the time continuously, gives me back control of it. I have never understood how time worked in our brain, until I have read the chapter about mental snapshots. One thing I can say about this amazing book: In management and financing we talk about Time/Money value, cash flow in time, time is money, etc. All of it seems to be nonsense to me now. Time is the most valuable and the only value that is constant and limited, all other parameters in life a variable parameters and, to a certain extent, unlimited to us. In addition, for the religious people among us, we have been warned (throughout various holy books) about the loss of time since the day of creation (“By time, verily man is in a state of loss”), and this is well exposed and thoroughly researched in this book. I love the fact that it confirms the benefits of meditation on time perception. Daily rituals humankind has towards meditation, that is done on daily or weekly basis, and that we might find funny or obsolete, seems not be so bad after all!I would like thank Mr. Jean Paul Zoghby for writing this book and putting his effort to benefit all of us. In case Mr. Zoghby, wishes to write a sequel to this book, he might go into detail on the following item, which also, for me, is still a mystery: Patience. I still find it hard to understand the term patience, since it is related to making the right decision at the right time or making the wrong decision at the wrong time. Patience is to my opinion in many cultures paramount with the focus on waiting. To my opinion, there is a scientific gap that still needs to be researched on patience. What is patience actually, and how can we determine this item scientifically?Again, thank you and good luck on your next steps.

    Finally, a book about time that is fit for a philosopher or layman! I found this book easy to read, but chalk full of profound insights about how we understand and navigate this uniquely human construction we call “time.” Zogby has really done his homework here. He starts out with a history of time, literally, trying to understand how we have come to understand our perception of how time passes. He proceeds to expertly explore how we sense time moving quickly or slowly, depending on the context in which we find ourselves. But what I found most original and engaging was his discussion of how we can actively “take control” of how we experience time, providing concrete suggestions to help us along the way. For example, Zogby discusses the effects of emotions such as fear, anger, anxiety, on our experiences of time. He suggests that to make the most of our time, we must learn to live in the moment, to pay the most attention to the things that matter, and to revel in feelings of awe in the everyday moments of life.Zogby has written a thoughtful and inspiring book – Highly Recommended!

    What if you could control your own time? Have you ever wanted to slow down time? Or make an unpleasant situation go faster? The Power of Time Perception shows you exactly how to do that. With various informative descriptions and details, Jean Paul Zogby nails the explanation on how to take time into our own hands.Opinion: I was very interested in this book from the get-go, as I have been thinking about how quickly time is moving as of late. This book is very informative in explaining how one can try to control how quickly time moves for them. I really liked how the author explained things in a manner that was easy to understand. I grasped every concept and was never confused.I was worried that this book would be more like a textbook in its nature, but I was glad to find how informative it was without being boring. The author is very talented in giving forth concepts without dragging on with his descriptions.The only thing I couldn’t quite agree with in this book is the author’s evolutionary stand-point. I’m not a believer in evolution, so a few of his statements I couldn’t agree with. Other than that, this was a very easy-to-understand book that I would recommend to anyone who is looking to take control of their time.Reviewed by a LitPick Student Book Reviewer Age: 17

    Time surely is something strange, in our most horrendous memories at school it seems that it stopped it, and when you’re out to play and relax it speed up to the point of a mere minute had just passed. Who would it thought there is a lot more to that than what may appear.How we perceive time? What is time itself? Why is different if we spent our time by doing what we want rather than invest in working and doing other things in order to increase the possibility of having more free time for us to relax, but how do we manage that? Even more so, if we realize all I wrote recently, is even harder. A huge recommendation for this author and this book, to think someone put this amount of effort in something people seem to think or consider as something without any real meaning. Time sure flies, especially those times when you think you are not wasting your time, just for that give this book a try, you might know a new thing or two.

    The Power of Time Perception: Control the Speed of Time to Make Every Second Count is one of those books you read well I read then ponder then usually reread and keep it on the bookshelf. Currently on preorder with amazon went ahead and read then rated it here; it's not as if I give spoilers.

    Have you ever wondered about how when you are having fun the time seems to fly by? Or when you are at work and those last thirty minutes are dragging along? This book helps explain that phenomenon and so much more. It is a great book that helps us first understand time and how we subconsciously perceive it and then helps us with effective time management. At times, full of scientific information and at others philosophical anecdotes, this book bridges a gap that many others don’t.Chock Full of good and thought provoking information, the author clearly has spent much time researching how the power of our mind can influence our perceptions of time. I liked this book and there are certainly ideas and practices that can be put to good use. I think that to be truly successful with it we will have to exercise willpower and stick with them, not just try them once and give up.

    ''Some people have it in their character to enjoy learning,absorb new information and experience the world to the fullest.For those,time would go slow and life is long and rich.''''If we come close to attaining that goal/what we would like to accomplish before we die/or partly achieve it,we become happy.''I'd made multiple notes from the book and really experienced,as suppose a lot of people did, these miracles connected with time assessment that where done in the book .It's curious that that topic turned out the subject of science.As for me,I came to the most conclusions suggested in the book by my own experience,but still that fact doesn't eliminate the meaning of book.It only proves ,I am on the right way.I also extracted several useful tips in understanding of other people personality .Thank you very much for the book.

    The Power of Time Perception: Control the Speed of Time to Make Every Second Count by Jean Paul Zogby is an extremely thought-provoking and, in some ways, startling book about the fundamental nature and reality of time. Time is something most of us take for granted, not only in our daily lives, but as a fact that exists. In The Power of Time Perception, Jean Paul Zogby shows us that time is interlinked with space in fundamental ways and, even more surprising, that the concept of time itself is created by our brain and mind and may very well be the ultimate illusion in a certain sense. The book is divided into four clear sections: how we experience time, the factors responsible for our individual perception of time, time as experienced in relation to the past and future, and how we can manage or control time to make every second count when needed. This book is a rare find that draws upon various fields and combines the metaphysical, psychological, and neurological aspects of the perception and meaning of time.I loved reading The Power of Time Perception and, in fact, there is so much information to take in and ponder over that I would probably re-read certain sections again. I was very surprised to realize how much we take time for granted and think of it as a fundamental aspect of reality when, in fact, it may or may not be so. But what Jean shows through this book is that one can learn to make every second count when needed and, basically, make the most of the life that is given. I also loved hearing about the research conducted in the neurological and scientific fields presented in this book. I could then apply this new knowledge to the metaphysical questions regarding time and everything made more sense. A very well researched book that I would highly recommend!

    Literally like changingThis book is for all of you who feels like time is speeding up and the years are starting to fly by. Filled with research on how we perceive time and suggestions on how we can use the findings to alter those perceptions. Very well written with specific instructions on how to slow down and use time to your advantage. Finally a book that focuses not on how to get more done in less time but rather how to live a full life.

    As a born night owl and introvert, I take exception to Mr. Zogby's belief that most night owls are extroverts. Night is when there are less or no people around. Night is when many creative people do their best work. Night was made for introverts. My disagreement with that point isn't why I'm giving this book only three stars, however. It gets three stars because the more I read, the less interested in time I got. This book was a bit like reading a really long Marilyn vos Savant column. Interesting stuff, but best as tidbits in a newspaper, not as a book that seemed to be taking too much time to finish. (Note: I received a free e-copy of this book from NetGalley and the author or publisher.)

    Stop the clockTime stops for no one but author Paul Zogby with his review of time perception in various cultures, philosophies, and physiologies. Easy to understand examples and concepts are used and reused to support various section of his thesis. In the end, it seems that living in the moment and trying something new to keep the brain active is key to controlling time and memories. Zogby mentions source material throughout the book and provides reference list. There are no footnotes, endnotes, or index. I was randomly chosen through a LibraryThing Giveaway to receive this book free from the author. Although encouraged, I was under no obligation to write a review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    This book is easy to read and it does make you consider if you are using your limited time wisely. Mostly what it proposes is mindfulness in what we are doing. In general if you do novel and interesting things time passes quickly but we create long memories and it is these remembered durations that count time. When you want time to pass quickly distraction is the key. If you want to slow down time alertness/awareness is the answer. I tend to multi task to save time but according to this book I'm actually wasting time because I'm not concentrating on anything so time passes without me realising.

    Time slowed down for the first 10 chaptersI read this book waiting for the last chapter. Each chapter I got through seemed to say the same thing in a slightly different way. So many studies and redundant examples really slowed things down. However, in the last chapter I finally got what I came for. Variety is the spice of life. Anticipation is often just as pleasurable as the anticipated activity, if not more so. Routine and monotony cause time to seem to slip away. Live in the moment. Stop and smell the roses. Keep learning. Keep growing. Live a full life by making every moment count. Time is not money. Time is much more valuable.

    Our minds cannot perceive time directly; what seems like "time" to us is really a sequence of events that happen to us. This fascinating and insightful book explores this topic in depth, citing many studies as backup. It was a real page turner, for me, filled with practical ramifications for how I want to live my life. The book gave me a whole new perception of what the passing of "time" really means in my life. The "time" that we seem (in our minds) to live on this earth is highly variable; our perception of time can be fast or slow depending upon how we choose to live. In this sense we actually have a great deal of control over the length of our (perceived) life! The author gives a practical guide to ways of living that will make our time on this earth seem rich, full and long. This book challenged me in many ways to increase the perceived "length" of my life by embracing more novelty and experiences, entering more fully into creative flow when working, resisting monotony and repetition, challenging myself and learning. I hope to be applying the lessons I learned for the rest of my life.

    It's mindfulness There's a lot of research and such, but ultimately it comes down to living mindfully. If you like brain research, neuroscience, and studies on human behavior and perception, you'll probably enjoy this book. If you're not really interested in zen philosophy but are interested in mindfulness, you'll probably find the book useful.
