Starting out from the everyday experience of time, the rhythms of day and night and the seasons, and the oddities of time zones and the International Date Line, John Gribbin goes on to the deeper mysteries of relativity theory, quantum mechanics, the implications of black holes and space-time tunnels, and the concept of parallel universes the present best scientific knowledge about the nature of time. Timewarps exist, offering new and startling insights into the whole nature of reality.
