Description
Twenty years after Stephen Hawking gave us A Brief History of Time, theoretical physicist Sean Carroll here takes the investigation into the nature of time to the next level. You can't unscramble an egg, any more than you can remember the future—but what if time doesn't (or didn't) always go in the same direction? Exploring subjects from entropy and quantum mechanics to time travel and the meaning of life, Carroll's research suggests that other universes experience time running in the opposite direction to our own, and he presents a dazzling new view of how we came to exist.

"For anyone who ever wondered about the nature of time and how it influences our universe, this book is a must read. It is beautifully written, lucid, and deep."—Kip Thorne

"No one is better equipped to take readers on a rollercoaster ride through time, space, and the origins of the universe than Caltech theoretical physicist Carroll, cofounder of Cosmic Variance, one of the top science blog sites. We're not thinking small here, Carroll announces with glee before launching into his topic. Time is a medium we move through and a way to sequence events. But the 'Arrow of Time' is also the only feature of the universe with one irreversible direction: time goes forward.... Carroll writes with verve and infectious enthusiasm, reminding readers that science is a journey in which getting there is, without question, much of the fun."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
