Product description

Review

"Michael Lockwood's book The Labyrinth of Time: Introducing the Universe has just appeared. I highly recommend it. It's a wonderful overview of the physics and philosophy of time, crafted extremely carefully and engagingly (yet without compromising any content) for the lay reader, superbly produced
and illustrated. Oh, and it's true." --Professor David Deutsch, author of The Fabric of Reality
"Lockwood takes the informed general reader through relativity theory and quantum physics on the large scale as well as the very small, reviewing theories of Newton, Boltzmann, Einstein, Penrose, Schrodinger and Hawking and the notions of flat and curved time-space, closed timelike curves, the
paradoxes of time travel, time asymmetry and the Second Law, entropy, electrodynamics, the emergence of order, quantum jumps, quantum gravity, and the role of the human observer in all of it. Lockwood's illustrations are particularly clear and helpful and his references could serve as a model for
like works."--SciTech Book News
"Lockwood...accomplishes here what may be lacking in other writings about the physics and philosophy of time...Lockwood is a gifted writer; the book is interesting, challenging and fun."--CHOICE
