Having mined the best of American research in fields as wide-ranging as finance, behavioral economics and law, Partnoy has written a beguilingly readable treatise that boils down to a single, easily digestible conclusion: in our busy modern lives, most of us react too quickly. I whole-heartedly recommend this book. -- Roger Lowenstein, author of 'The End of Wall Street' and 'When Genius Failed'
As is the way of counterintuitive American gurus ... Partnoy ranges far and wide in search of his evidence, taking in neuroscience, psychology, military strategy, business and sport ... The moral is clear, says Partnoy, and I, for one, am right behind him - don't just do something: stand there. * Daily Mail *
Wait is the anti-Blink ... presents a seductive case for measured action, which will be a palliative to many who feel pummelled by deadlines or the relentless onrush of modern media. A surprisingly zippy, fun book, best read when you're supposed to be doing something else. * Time Out *
Fascinating * FT *
