The Washington Post reviews When.
The most general advice comes at the end, when Pink recommends that we not live in the present, “as so many spiritual gurus have advised,” but integrate the past, present and future; various studies suggest that nostalgia increases life’s meaning and that we make better plans when we identify with our future selves. I think living in the present has its place (and time) too, and these few pages could be expanded into a book of their own, possibly with more Heidegger. But the big-picture musings are a nice prompt for the interested reader at the finale of an otherwise practical book.
Most books could do with more Heidegger.
