In Pressed for Time, Judy Wajcman explains why we immediately interpret our experiences with digital technology as inexorably accelerating everyday life. She argues that we are not mere hostages to communication devices, and the sense of always being rushed is the result of the priorities and parameters we ourselves set rather than the machines that help us set them."--Jacket.

"The Way we Live Now" is one of Trollope's most kaleidoscopic novels, one that brings the Victorian age vividly to life. In its depiction of a Victorian London in the grips of the new and morally bankrupting power of speculative finance, this novel has more than a little to say about some of the governing obsessions of our own age.

Escaping the Time Crunch is not just another time management book. Mark Littleton cuts directly to the heart of the conflict busy Christians face as they try to carry out the seemingly contradictory commands "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10) and "Make the most of every opportunity" (Colossians 4:5). He challenges us to take a fresh look at our priorities and commitments at home, in the work place, and in the church.
