    • An evening with Daniel H. Pink at Gramercy Books

      Dan Pink
      Did you know you should avoid going to the hospital in the afternoon? Or that singing in time with other people is as good for you as exercise? And how do you know when it’s the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers or get married? 

      Drawing on a rich trove of research from psychology, biology and economics, bestselling author Daniel H. Pink reveals how best to live, work and succeed in his new book, “WHEN: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing.” A discussion and book signing with the 1992 Bexley High School graduate will be held on Thursday, March 8, at 7 PM at the school’s Schottenstein Theater, 326 Cassingham Road. 

      Sponsored by Gramercy Books in partnership with Capital University’s School of Management and Leadership, Bexley City Schools and The Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business, the event is free with a valid student ID. Tickets for non-students are $10 at Gramercy Books, 2424 E. Main Street, and can be applied toward the purchase of any of Pink’s books.

      “WHEN: The Scientific Secrets to Perfect Timing” will be the selected read for Gramercy Book Club on February 19 at 7 PM. The book discussion, held at Gramercy Books, will be facilitated by Sherry Peck, Capital University’s acting associate dean for the School of Management and Leadership.

      The author of six books, Pink distills cutting-edge research and data on timing with “WHEN.” He synthesizes scientific secrets into a fascinating, readable narrative packed with irresistible stories and practical takeaways that give readers compelling insights into how we all can live richer, more engaged lives.

      From “To Sell is Human” to “Drive” to “A Whole New Mind,” Pink’s enormously influential New York Times bestselling books illuminate the hidden forces that affect our lives in major ways. His books have won multiple awards and have been translated into 35 languages. Pink’s TED Talk on the science of motivation is one of the 10 most-watched TED Talks of all time, with more than 19 million views. 

      Pink has been a contributing editor at Fast Company and Wired, as well as a business columnist for The Sunday Telegraph. His articles and essays have also appeared in The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, The New Republic, Slate and other publications. Pink received a bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University, where he was a Truman Scholar and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and a Juris Doctor from Yale Law School. He lives with his family in Washington, D.C.
