Saving Time: Discovering a Life Beyond the Clock

Saving Time: Discovering a Life Beyond the Clock, by Jenny Odell

While the title might make this sound like a time management book, Jenny Odell in her follow-up book to How to Do Nothing argues against time management and encourages us to “save” as in “rescue” time from the clutches of productivity. Informed by the experience of the early days of the pandemic, as well as a reading list that will keep me busy for quite some time, anyway, this book is thought-provoking and very honest in her look at whether or not this rescue of time is even possible. I’m still thinking about this book months after I read it.
