About Time

A History of Civilization in Twelve Clocks




A horological history of human civilisation, told through twelve world-changing clocks

This is a book about the meaning of time, what it is, when it has started, how it flows and where to. It examines the consequences of Einstein's theory of relativity and offers startling suggestions about what recent research may reveal.
