Peabody here and my boy Sherman,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I have always likes contemporary science, history and the like. Not that new age claptrap about thinking particles, but the more current glossed over actual theories of today. If I wanted a more in-depth explanation, I could read the sources for this book.
The interest is in the speculation and it begs the question "What do you think." I do however get exposed to concepts there are overlooked in all the math behind most of the books on time and its various definitions.
Sean Carroll stakes a good balance between what we know and do not know and what we could know and cannot know.
I downloaded the first chapter on the Kindle (free) and it was worth reading to see what I was buying. I went ahead and bought the hardback. When the kindle enables Text-to-Speech, I will buy another copy, as it is a convent way to carry your library.
I can see where a few concepts were missed but it is not worth going into it in a review. What is in the book is well worth the read time. And then you have a great reference book for the library. I look forward to reading more books by Sean Carroll.
Oh did I forget to say that this book is about speculation on the meanings and understanding of "time."
