Product description


Extraordinary. . . you should read it (Nick Hornby Believer)

Modern physics has found its poet. A captivating, fascinating, profoundly beautiful book. . . Rovelli is a wonderfully humane, gentle and witty guide for he is as much philosopher and poet as he is a scientist (John Banville Irish Times)

A dizzying, poetic work in which I found myself abandoning everything I thought I knew about time (Charlotte Higgins Guardian)

Wonderful. . . Time is something we think we know about instinctively; here he shows how profoundly strange it really is (Philip Pullman Guardian)

Meet the new Stephen Hawking. . . I've never seen special relativity explained so well, never visualised it less fuzzily, never felt such a jolt of shock at what it implies (James McConnachie Sunday Times)

A joy to read. . . Rovelli writes easily, vividly and brilliantly - he is as at ease with Beethoven as he is with Boltzmann's constant, and verses by Horace launch each chapter, one of which ends with a couplet from the Grateful Dead. . . A delight (Tim Radford Guardian)

A deep - and remarkably readable - dive into the fundamental nature of time. . . written with enough charm and poetry to engage the imagination of anyone who reads it (Clive Cookson Financial Times)

Highly original. . . The heart and humanity of the book, its poetry and its gentle tone raise it to the level and style of such great scientist-writers as Lewis Thomas and Rachel Carson (Alan Lightman New York Times Book Review)

Rovelli is one of our great scientific explicators. . . Not since Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time has there been so genial an integration of physics and philosophy (Ian Thomson Observer)

Physics' literary superstar makes us rethink time. . . The Order of Time will surely establish Rovelli among the pantheon of great scientist-communicators (Philip Ball New Scientist)

Book Description

With his extraordinary charm and sense of wonder, bringing together science, art and philosophy, Carlo Rovelli unravels this mystery, inviting us to imagine a world where time is in us and we are not in time.
