Reviews

This is how twentieth-century science really began....Engaging, original, and absolutely brilliant.--James Gleick
An easy-reading but penetrating book. [Galison] brings the story of time to life as a story of wires and rails, precision maps, and imperial ambitions, as well as a story of physics and philosophy.
Galison provides a unique and enlightening view on the origin of time as we know it in the modern age.
