We are obsessed with time. However hard we might try, it is almost impossible to spend even one day without the marker of a clock. But how much do we understand about time, and is it possible to retrain our brains and improve our relationship with it?

Drawing on the latest research from the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and biology, and using original research on the way memory shapes our understanding of time, acclaimed writer and broadcaster Claudia Hammond delves into the mysteries of time perception. Along the way, she introduces us to an extraordinary array of colourful characters willing to go to great lengths in the interests of research, such as the French speleologist Michel, who spends two months in an ice cave in complete darkness.

Time Warped shows us how to manage our time more efficiently, speed time up and slow it down at will, plan for the future with more accuracy, and, ultimately, use the warping of time to our own advantage.

Claudia Hammond is an award-winning writer, broadcaster, and psychology lecturer. She is the author of Emotional Rollercoaster: A Journey through the Science of Feelings, which was published in six territories. She won the 2011 Mind Media's Making a Difference Award (given to those who set the agenda and initiate change) and the British Psychological Society's 2012 Public Engagement and Media Award. She has also been shortlisted for the Professional Publishers Association Magazine Columnist of the Year Award, the International Award for Humanitarian Journalism, and the Medical Journalism Awards.
