Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(9), 695–696. Reviews the book, The Personal Experience of Time edited by Bernard S. Gorman and Alden E. Wessman (1977). Several of the chapters in this book are so intriguing and enjoyable that one would like to see their central ideas further developed, discussed by other workers, tested by research, and criticized by opponents. Unfortunately, each author follows his own road without any apparent planning for parking lots where they could get together or intersections where they could collide. This problem may be difficult to avoid unless one is willing to restrict the scope of the discussion. Time is such an all-pervasive characteristic that almost anything can be treated so as to appear relevant to it. The book illustrates this problem very well. This book certainly does not serve as a thorough review of the current status of research and theory in specific areas such as time perception.
