When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing

When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing

Rating: 4/5 | Anyone who reads a fair amount of nonfiction will tell you: Too many nonfiction books say pretty much nothing new. Refreshingly, When is not one of those books.

(I highly recommend listening to memoirs when the author reads them.) The book was really personal, totally real, and a true delight to listen to. Oh, and definitely very funny.
