This is a really fun book to read- often found myself laughing out loud. The authors did a great job of balancing humor, cutting edge science and fiction. Highly recommend!! Great for science junkies also.

Since you've probably already read this hilarious and entertaining guide to time traveling in the future and determined its usefulness, I don't really have to say much in this review except this: trust your future self. You enjoy this book later on, so why not beat yourself to the punch and read it now? You'll save your future self some work, and you'll have that many more years of enjoying its funny pop culture references and actual science-y stuff ahead of you!

Hysterical April 11 2012
By Jennie - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is hysterical and surprisingly useful for time travel. I can't tell you how many times I've heeded their advice to "run, run very fast" while traipsing through the time space continuum. Many thanks to the authors for helping me to survive!!

Interesting, fun guide! May 9 2012
By New reader - Published on
Format: Paperback
The title So You Created a Wormhole: The Time Traveler's Guide to Time Travel is an interesting and fun to read. It is also education because it discusses of physics and pop culture.
How would you otherwise learn how to create a battery out of dinosaur poop ... or similar issues! LOL!
This title gives you fun and helpful information how to survive during different times and the illustrations are also great!

--- some funny spoilers ----
Essential time travel knowledge:
* Choosing the right time machine, from DeLoreans to hot tubs to phone booths - and beyond
* What to say - and what NOT to say - to your doppelganger
* Understanding black holes and Stephen Hawking's term "spaghettification" (no, it's not a method of food preperation; yes, it is a horrifically painful way to meet your end)
* The connection between Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, traversing wormholes and the 88 mph speed requirement
* The possible consequences of creating a time paradox-including, but not limited to, the implosion of the universe

Survival tips for nearly any sticky time travel situation:
* How to befriend a dinosaur and subsequently fight other dinosaurs with that dinosaur
* Instructions to build your very own Rube Goldberg Time Machine
* Crusading - for fun and profit
* Tips on battling cowboys, pirates, ninjas, samurai, Nazis, Vikings, robots and space marines
* How to operate a microwave oven
* Enjoying the servitude of robots and tips for living underground when they inevitably rise up against us

--- end ----

Read this and have fun to learn your physics and time traveling at the same time!

Simply Outstanding June 2 2012
By Kenneth Singleton - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is a humorous, contrarian, helpful, ambiguous, insightful, cautionary, and celebratory tale of travel through time.

The theory section of the book respectfully pulls from the [ahem] factual canon previously established in Back to the Future and Hot Tub Machine with just enough real-life "It's-shake-and-bake-and-I-helped" physics to make your head swim.

The wit is dry and the roaring fire off the destroyed remnants of the time machines of the hostile time travelers who lost their associated time battles is inviting.

Whether you advocate the riding of dinosaurs as does the book or the punching of dinosaurs as do other time travelling enthusiasts, you will find appropriate advice within its pages.

Bought the Kindle edition, because there's really no other way to read a book of the future that is also a book of the present and the past.

Thoroughly enjoyed.

Very good and useful information! However,... April 16 2012
By Stuffman - Published on
Format: Paperback
...where was this book when I really needed it back in 1397? I must warn those who don't think "RTFM" applies to them. You better read the WHOLE thing or you may miss that one important part about..... You'll know it when you read it. Can't wait for the sequel.

Hilariously useful. Don't travel through time without it. April 16 2012
By Brian - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is awesome. So much useful information for the time traveler wannabe. If you want to avoid being eaten by dinosaurs and/or mate with hot futuristic extraterrestrials, make sure you read this book first. It's a lifesaver.
