Time's Arrows: Scientific Attitudes Toward Time Reviews
A very interesting lay person's overview of the physicists' understanding of time
This may not be the best book of all time, but it does provide some interesting insights into how time can be viewed. It was worth my time.
Even though the 80s cover design drew a few comments, the book really helped bring me a little further into the present. I bought after flipping it open and encountering a brief mention of the psychological arrow. A science book that can give a nod to experience intrigues me. I am still walking around, contemplating with awe the fact that the heavier something is, the more it slows time. What an incredible universe we live in.
This is a great read for science fiction lovers.
Pretty good -- but old. Some things are out of date, but the explanations of relativity and particle physics are clear and well done.
