"Every now and then a book appears which can truly be counted as an original. This is one of those books. Each chapter produces a different kind of sparkle but the overall effect is clear: to shine a light into a series of different kinds of social fractures and crevices that make up the use of time, thereby giving the lie to the idea of anything as simple as a notion like routine. The diversity of the book makes it a constant delight to read, the theme will surely be a stimulus to further work. Terrific. - Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick. Co-Author of Times, Spaces and Places and Shaping the Day

The book is arranged around a number of case studies from different cultures, including a comparative analysis in the UK between 1937 and 2000 and seasonal and commerical rhythms of domestic consumption in Japan. The reader comes away with a much more subtle understanding of the topic. - The Scientific and Medical Network

The book is well presented, a strongly bound paperback, with acceptable price. The content has very strong value as teaching material as well as building further research. - Nancy J. Pollock, Victoria University (New Zealand)"
