Oh well, I loved this book and think Prigogine's work is of fundamental importance. The math's not bad if you're from an engineering or science background, otherwise skip the math -- the text in the first 3 and ending chapters makes the point.
One of the other reviewers got it all wrong. Just like we all seem to accept that there are no infinite velocities -- they do not exist -- so too, there is no infinitely precise location -- it does not exist either, independent of whether there's an observer or not. Without infinite precision, you get time, creativity and with a little intelligence, meaning (my claim, not Ilya's. Well at least science doesn't preclude it anymore...sort of a multi-century "D'oh!").
Probability is now the fundamental unit of understanding and dynamics, not trajectories. What's neat is how well this dovetails into the Process Philosophers and theologians like Whitehead and Rav Abrahan Cook as well as Bhaskara way back in the 10th century.
The section on cosmology is well in line with recent findings. I recommend the book.

The writers do not challenge the validity of quantum mechanics. They point out, that microscopic reversability is compatible with the existence of an arrow of time in the observed world. This arrow of time exists, because time reversal of a macroscopic process, i.e. the same process going 'backwards' in time, is practically impossible, due e.g. to loss of information during quantum mechanical particle scattering. Bolzmann was critized in the 19th century for postulating a microscopic model which lacked time reversal symmetry; Prigogine and Sengers show, that macroscopic ensembles have an arrow of time even though the microscopic laws of quantum mechanics do not. Biology is, in the end, physics!

In a direct extension of his Nobel-prize-winning work on thermodynamics,Prigogine explains that almost all natural systems are non-determinsitic, even if all their components are subject to deterministic laws. This is because such systems have enormous numbers of Poincare resonances which lead to fundamentally non-deterministic solutions. This provides a solution to 3 of the most important problems in science: 1. Time's arrow 2. The Measurement Problem in QM 3. The existence of Freewill.
Everyone who is seriously interested in these questions should read this book.

This book did confront me with one of the most important perceptions in my life: that all physical elements can decay ( i would prefer to say transform or transmute) under certain circumstances - in one of about 10 high 22 sun systems in our universe - from an Excited State (at high temperature) into 1st) a Photon, quantum wave state with a corresponding frequency (which mutates later at a lower temperature from Bright Energy into Bright Matter) and into 2nd) a Ground State Particle (like Dark Matter with Dark Energy, Black Holes, rotating with Gravitation).
This knowledge leads us to understand why our universe includes more than 90 % of Dark Matter and Dark Energy.
Considering Cosmic Microwave Background Temperature and Ludwig Boltzmann, s Constant, we can also understand that our universe shall reach the next cosmic cycle in about 14 billion years, to follow the eternal cycles of space-time in Cosmos, in harmony with bruno.espinosas panidism.

Nobel Laureate Prigogine describes how the lack of infinitely precise measurements and non-linear behavior in the laws of nature give rise to the arrow of time experienced by all of us. His results seem completely natural in everyday experience where you never see a broken glass on the floor jump back on the table and reassemble itself. Prigogine shows that the current laws of physics, when used in a mathematical framework that excludes perfect measurements, gives rise to laws of nature where an uncertain future must follow the past. An excellent, but technical, book.

The author seems too argumentative in this book. His main premise seems to rest on the idea that we cannot succesfully achieve the needed precision of measurment to show time as reversible. I am of the belief that laws of nature hold, regardless of our precision of measurement. Prigogine has Einstein rolling in his grave.
