The Art and Science of Delay
By Frank Partnoy
About the summary

What do these scenarios have in common: a professional tennis player returning a serve, a woman evaluating a first date across the table, a naval officer assessing a threat to his ship and a comedian about to reveal a punch line? In Wait: The Art and Science of Delay, author Frank Partnoy weaves together findings from hundreds of scientific studies and interviews with wide-ranging experts to craft a picture of effective decision-making that runs counter to our brutally fast-paced world.
