Daniel H. Pink, the bestselling author of Drive and To Sell Is Human, unlocks the scientific secrets to good timing to help you flourish at work, at school, and at home. Everyone knows that timing is everything. But we don’t know much about timing itself. Our lives are a never-ending stream of when decisions: when to start a business, schedule a class, get serious about a person. Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork. Timing, it’s often assumed, is an art. In When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, Pink shows that timing is really a science

In a word, charming. In two words, charming and smart. This doesn't read like a typical children's book. It usees big words and big ideas that 10- or 11-year-olds are justt starting to discover. I really enjoyed the fact that Pinkwater doesn't "dumb it down" for kids. And to those who think it's "boring" or "too slow", it's exactly the right pace, steady like a turtle -- a sacred turtle.

I like Mr. Pinkwater and I like Ned's adventures. I just couldn't get into the rhythm of the book and anticipate the next page. In all fairness I decided to take Mr. Gaiman's suggestion to read the book aloud and that did increase the hilarity of the prose quite a bit.

There is no city of Illiad, and Achilles wrath comes from Sandor Eucalyptus and Sholmos Bunyip. And I didn't count but I'm pretty sure that there were not 15,693 lines or dactylic hexameter. And I'm not skilled enough in dactylic hexameter to pinpoint hexameter when I see it. And instead of beginning our tale at the end of the Trojan War we begin at the end of World War II.

The story is told in short chapters almost episodic or episodial (if those are words). So you will have 79 episodes in Neddie's journey.

Anyhow the nuts and bolts are that Neddie is going to take a train, he'll go to Hollywood and he will save civilization. And you will meet Iggy (otherwise thought of as Odysseus). So Iggy's journey will be continued in the Yggyssey.

Oh - and you should read it aloud - it does have a rhythm, and all great epics were meant to be read aloud - even to music.

What a refreshing memoir! It's written with a child's innocence and an adult's perspective. If you read it with Pink's voice in your head it's like being tucked in by a favorite uncle.

What a fun read out loud, laugh out loud book. My kids have read it over and over again.

What's the book about? Mr. Pinkwater states we haven't yet figured it out and he isn't going to tell us what it's about either.

The Neddiad and the sequel The YggYsseY = The Iliad and The Odyssey. I really wish I could say I figured this out all on my own. But nope. I'm not quite that smart yet.

We were trying to indoctrinate 9 year old Milla as a future new member into our book club of long-timer babes. She came well-prepared to her first book club. Had a list of questions to ask us all (really good and thought-provoking questions). We were trying to act all adult and everything but I think she saw through us.

Then as we were all leaving, Milla sort of whispered to me: "It's about The Iliad and The Odyssey." I was gobsmacked. Why hadn't I figured that out? Why did it take someone fifty [mumble mumble] years younger than I to figure it out? I'm thinking she's too smart to be a member of our book club.

She wants to borrow my copy of The YggYsseY. I don't know. Maybe I'll have to make her teach me a few things in return.

BTW - Lizard Music is one of the best books ever written - past, present, and of course, future. The Neddiad is standing right up there along side it.

Daniel Pinkwater writes for the young and young at heart. I would recommend this book except for the part where they shoot and old horse to provide food for the zoo's big cats. Otherwise, it is engaging, supernatural and funny. I like it!!

In this book, the main character, Neddie Wentworthstein, goes on a train ride with his family across the country, meets a ghost, a movie star, goes to boarding school, hangs out with his friends, and ultimately must confront an evil supernatural force that threatens to wipe out humankind and return the world to the ice age. You know, just an average kid...

"The Neddiad" is very difficult to describe. I read it out loud to my 8- and 10-year-old sons and we LOVED it. It's written from the POV of the life of a post-WW2 boy as he hangs out and goes about his daily business. Neddie weaves his story in a The author's tone is a delightful deadpan -- matter-of-fact, witty, sarcastic, not afraid to poke fun, but in an awesomely curious, good-humored, game-for-anything kind of way. It also makes for a GREAT bedtime read-aloud because every chapter is extremely short (4 or 5 pages long, tops), easy to stop and start, yet you somehow always want to keep going. I work in a children's library and this will be one I will recommend to 4th graders and up who are looking for something off the beaten path.
