Reviews

"...a fascinating foray into the idea that our experience of time is actively created by our own minds and how these sensations of what neuroscientists and psychologists call "mind time" are created."--Maria Popova, BrainPickings
"A well-researched meditation on how we see the future.... There's one great question of time, one which of course this book cannot answer, but on which it gives a great deal of much-needed perspective: 'How much do I have left?' "--Slate
"In Time Warped, Claudia Hammond... has a steady touch in conveying the research, adding user-friendly charm even to exhaustive descriptions of the mechanics of boredom. A chapter on visualization is particularly intriguing."--Jascha Hoffman, New York Times
"This is an ideal read for those looking for science-based theories of time perception without the scientific jargon.... Despite the common belief that time moves at a constant pace, Hammond demonstrates how life's circumstances can make minutes seem an eternity and decades the blink of an eye."--Library Journal
"This lively introduction to the psychology of time perception is an intriguing take on the fluidity of reality."--Publishers Weekly
