Not the most exciting read but it was interesting to learn about our understanding of and the feasibility of time travel in a chronological format. This isn't science fiction--these are actual theories from top physicists.

I enjoyed the concepts proposed but only 2 stars because I suppose it's difficult to make this topic an intoxicating read.

Not a great book, but interesting and informative. A valiant attempt was made to create a history of time travel where none exists. Several post 2000 episodes were presented which, for me, bordered on conspiracy theory. Nevertheless, I found the book entertaining at best, and at worst -- a waste of time.
This is like every time travel theory you ever knew, plus a whole bunch more you never even suspected. A bible for anyone into the subject!

A very good introduction based on discovery and technology timeline on where we are and visions of the future.
