Product description

Review

“Falk’s book is what Hawking’s [A Brief History of Time] should have been.”
Ottawa Citizen

“Falk seamlessly combines science with literary and philosophical observations … and digresses to fascinating topics like root notions of past and future, the vagaries of memory and the behavior of birds at breakfast time. Rounding out his multi-course feast, Falk contrasts Newton’s notion of ‘[a]bsolute, true, and mathematical’ time with Einstein’s final words in 1955, ‘the distinction of past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion,’ to present modern speculations on black holes and the universe's future.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Dan Falk is a riveting writer: his latest book is almost unputdownable. He covers an eclectic range of fascinating topics -- from prehistory to the far future. Time is a mysterious commodity: we gain, spend, save and lose it. But everyone should make enough time to read In Search of Time.”
— Martin J. Rees, author of Just Six Numbers and Our Final Hour

“[Falk] selects, organizes and interprets a mass of lore for our enlightenment and pleasure. We owe him.”
Scientific American


From the Hardcover edition.
