Like many of his other titles, the book was short, engaging and thought provoking. I was perhaps a bit confused about this one. I understand that he is trying to comment on the time focus of our culture, but I'm not sure that I absorbed the entire message that he is trying to convey. Maybe I'm looking too deep. Sometimes a story is just a story. But that is seldom the case with this author. Perhaps he is trying to say that our worries over time only exist because we have come to "count" time. It makes me wish I was part of a book club just to discuss this one.
