I am completely sure that every kind of reader will get pleasure from this book; furthermore, I guarantee that any reader will recover his/her lost faith in time travel. If you saw "Contact" (the movie), or you often read science-fiction novels or even if you just want to enjoy a good and productive reading, you are strongly advised to buy and read this excellent and fascinating book. "Time: A Traveler's Guide" was written in the same clear, precise and funny way as "Black Holes: A Traveler's Guide" was done in its opportunity. The book now featured by Dr. Pickover will let you discover the "science behind the science-fiction" about the main topic by means of a science-fiction story plenty of funny dialogs, diagrams, formulas and graphics that make the information, and the book in general, a delight to read. You will NOT need vast knowledge in physics or mathematics to understand the ideas, and furthermore, to realize that time travel is possible. The book also offers a great deal of information about the special and the general theory of relativity besides spacetime physics. I also recommend Pickover's book about Black Holes as an excellent complement because that book is one of the best text in this topic and you will see that black holes could serve (in a far but possible future) to travel through time. Sincerely, buy the book and you will see that every page you read becomes a piece of your renovated faith in a dream as beautiful as paradoxical, TIME TRAVEL!

Hi, I notice Publisher's Weekly said about the book, "If you thought time travel was just for science fiction nuts, think again. As Pickover demonstrates, time travel is not the stuff of Asimovian dreams, it being theoretically possible. Of course, how to travel through time is is no simple matter, nor is explaining it, but Pickover rises to the challenge in many ways. Despite the popular tone, Pickover does not shy away from the mathematics of time travel. (He even includes an appendix of programmable algorithms.) A careful reader with some basic science should be able to follow Pickover chapter by chapter . The imaginative and humorous approach makes a difficult subject palatable -- and gives a plug for Chopin at the same time."

Once again, Clifford Pickover has taken tough concepts in physics, mathematics and philosophy and made them available and enjoyable to all. This time with Time: A Traveler's Guide.
As in previous works, Pickover places the reader into the story. The reader along with his companions perform many experiments and mental excercises. The actions of the characters and the experiments themselves are then explained in sections called "The Science Behind the Science Fiction". This makes the book enjoyable for anyone interested in time and time travel. And of course, Pickover includes computer algorithms at the end of the book for us computer junkies!
An excellent book for anyone wishing to travel through time!

Once again, Clifford Pickover has taken tough concepts in physics, mathematics and philosophy and made them tangible to the common reader. This time, he guides the reader through a plethora of mind stretching ideas dealing with time and time travel.
Like other books by Cliff, Time: a Traveler's Guide is written in such a way that anyone with an interest in time and time travel (from one who considers him or herself weak in physics to one who may have a PhD in a science) will enjoy this book. And of course, the computer experiments at the back of the book especially appeal to us computer junkies!
A must read for anyone considering traveling through time!

Dr. Pickover has written an entertaining account of time travel. The book may be enjoyed by a scientist or an ordinary reader. In keeping with his unique thought process Pickover has appended a section of comments provided by friends, in effect a set of book reviews. One comment - "The relativistic metric is hyperbolic" can only be appreciated by a physicist. Pickover is indeed a world-class science writer. Any of his books is worth reading. It is a surprise that he did not make himself a subject of his book titled "Strange Brains and Genius; The Secret Lives of Eccentric Scientists and Madmen".

This was written after Black Holes, A Traveller's Guide and follows exactly the same format. The story was not quite as good, but the subject matter of the book was more interesting and relevant to everyday experience (at least for techies) , particularly the chapter on The Brain's Time Machine. The brain compensates for delay loops in the human body's operating system, and knowing how these work enables experiments to be performed that make it look as though people can see short periods into the future.

I am a physics lecturer at a small college. When I came across this book in the college bookstore, I was amazed and delighted. I thought I knew something about the nature of time. I read the book three times already, each time picking up new information. Once you read the chapter "The Brain's Time Machine", you'll never feel the same again. A profound and beautiful book. Students will cherish this book through the next century.

One-stop shopping for a particularly clear and entertaining description of time as seen from the scientific viewpoint (philosophy has its own collection of work on "what is time?").
The chapter "The brain's time machine" is especially interesting... time DOES bend your mind.

The April 1998 issue of Booklist says of this book, "ENTERTAINING... WILD... IMAGINATIVE... THE INTELLECTUAL DARING OF THIS BOOK GUARANTEES IT A SIZABLE READERSHIP NOW AND -- WHO KNOWS? -- PERHAPS IN THE DISTANT PAST AND FUTURE AS WELL." - Booklist, 1998
