Book Review: Fstr

Faster by James Gleick was oddly enough a book I didn't read fast. This was my lunch and break book at work. Gleick is a great writer. He ties culture, research, and humor into a concise ball of a book. Fstr is a look at time as it relates to the human situation. The book is full of anectodes that put your understanding and use of time into some manageable perspective. I really like his noting that we spend equal amounts of time on paperwork as on sex. I also had a good government-employee's chuckle over the government agency assigned to study time usage in government. The Zen of the book is, Don't be frenetic even though you can't help it
