Since the ancients, physicists have argued that time is not real, that we may think we experience time passing but it's just a human illusion in a timeless universe operating on predetermined laws. Lee brilliantly shows how this thinking came about from our deep need for stability and the eternal, but that indeed time may be the only thing that is real.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Time reborn Fascinating subject and interesting theory but not an easy read. Lee Smolin is a better cosmologist than an author.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Repetitive Lee Smolin has nothing new to say in his latest book. He has recited all over again the same issues in " The Trouble with Physics".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosmic. Awesome. Elegant mixture of science and philosophy at the boundary where they almost meet.
