These days we all have too much to do and too little time. No Time is about how technology has changed our lives and what we can do about it. Starting with the single observation that no one seems to have time anymore, best-selling author Heather Menzies pulls the connecting threads to unravel the crisis of meaning and accountability threatening to paralyze society today. Seeing a link between various diseases of our times—from stress and depression among adults to attention deficit disorder in kids— Menzies argues that what’s happening to people is also happening to institutions and society at large. Somewhere between the multi-tasking pace and the sea of data divorced from real life, we’re losing touch with ourselves and with each other. We’re even losing a sense of how to tell when things go wrong and how to take action when they do. We need to take back our lives and renew the humanity of our social institutions. No Time speaks directly to what lies beneath the surface of many issues confronting society today and ends on a note of hope by suggesting what we can do to restore balance in our personal lives and to renew a more human scale of time and space in our social environment.
