James Gleick: Time Travel says
One of the foremost chroniclers of the impacts of science and technology on life (and perception of life), James Gleick makes this very welcome Seattle return for his dazzling new book, Time Travel: A History (Pantheon). The author of Chaos and more recently, The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood, he looks at notions of time travel in literature and science, doing so wondrously.

“James Gleick is a master historian of ideas—no one else can do what he does. Synthesis leads to elucidation leads to stunning, original insight. Time Travel, like so much of his work, is simply indispensable.” —Charles Yu

“From Wells to Schrödinger to Twitter, [Gleick] doesn’t miss a beat, and he imparts a wry appreciation for humorous detail, making him one of the most enjoyable science writers in the field….Another fantastic contribution…from Gleick, whose lush storytelling will appeal to a wide range of audiences.” —Kirkus Reviews
