  • 'Cassie Holmes is an expert on time, and this readable, practical book might just make you rethink how you spend yours' Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Think Again

    An expert guide to managing your time for a happier, more fulfilling existence.

    The most precious commodity we own isn't money. It's time. We are allotted just twenty-four hours a day, and we live in a culture that keeps us feeling 'time poor' - like we never have enough. Since we can't add more hours to the day, how can we experience our lives more richly?

    Based on Professor Cassie Holmes's wildly popular MBA class at UCLA, Happier Hour demonstrates how to immediately improve our lives by changing how we perceive and invest our time. Holmes provides empirically based insights and easy-to-implement tools that will allow you to:

    -Spend your hours optimally and feel confident in your choices
    -Side-step distractions
    -Create and savour moments of joy
    -Design your days and weeks with purpose
    -Look back on your years without regret

    Enlivened by Holmes's upbeat narrative and groundbreaking research, Happier Hour will teach you how small changes can have an enormous impact - helping you feel less overwhelmed, more present and more satisfied with your life overall - things that money can't buy. It all starts by transforming just one hour into a happier hour.
