Calendars, eons, nanoseconds, millennia - no instrument or measurement is overlooked in this wholly entertaining and intellectually bracing book which chronicles the enduring human quest to explain, utilize, and understand the enigma of time.
An informal and informative tour through science and history, it introduces a host of colorful characters ranging from the primitive homo erectus to modern time explorers, from Zeno to Caesar to Pope Gregory, Galileo, Sir Isaac Newton, and Albert Einstein, whose theory of relativity posited time as the fourth dimension of our physical universe.
