"Unifying cosmology, thermodynamics, and information science into a refreshingly accessible whole, From Eternity to Here
will make you wish time's arrow could fly in reverse, if only so you could once again read the book for the first time."
"Carroll...takes his readers on a fascinating and refreshing trek through every known back alley and cul de sac of quantum mechanics, relativity, cosmology and theoretical physics. The best way to grasp the rich mysteries of our universe is by constantly rereading the best and clearest explanations. Mr. Carroll's From Eternity to Here
is certainly one of them."
-Wall Street Journal
"For anyone who ever wondered about the nature of time and how it influences our universe, this book is a must read. It is beautifully written, lucid, and deep." -Kip Thorne, Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics at Caltech, author of Black Holes and Time Warps
"Sean Carroll's From Eternity to Here
provides a wonderfully accessible account of some of the most profound mysteries of modern physics. While you may not agree with all his conclusions, you will find the discussion fascinating, and taken to much deeper levels than is normal in a work of popular science." -Sir Roger Penrose, University of Oxford, author of The Road to Reality and The EMperor's New Mind
