"Time Frenzy dares to ask the question 'are we aware of the costs of and willing to pay the price for the ever-increasing SPEED of our lives?' Time Frenzy is provocative and balanced and should be seen by as many people as possible."

Time Frenzy examines the social and ethical ramifications of our incresingly fast-paced lives. One of the ironies of the new technology virtually all Americans now use is that it was supposed to save us time and improve the quality of life, yet it is actually creating more frenzied and draning lifestyles. To many workers, regardless of their occupation, the 40 hour work week has become a responsibility to family and it has become obvious that there is a workforce spinning at the edge of an abyss. Time Frenzy discusses this "24-7" existence and then goes on to compare the American work ethic with those in other countries, in the process examining the impact of technology on personal relationships, education, health and the environment.
