Some nice, and for the most part reasonably accurate factoids, but ultimately let down by poor/simplistic science, contrived and pretensious mathematics and some well-masked circular reasoning.

On the plus side, few actual conclusions are drawn; rather the oh-so-important implications and suggestions are left to 'speak for themselves'. Something they utterly fail to do of course, unless you've already bought into the nonsense and have suspended critical faculties.

Reference to mystical ratios etc

A load of new age crap enveloped in nice design.

According to author, science today has lost the knowledge of the ancients, yet we somehow fling satellites around every planet, add leap seconds according to atomic clocks, and have precision of femtoseconds 10^-15 in research...

Generally a waste of time unless you're new-ager or conspiracy theorist.

Honestly, this book should be required reading in schools. It gives a very concise overview of a hugely important topic that is almost completely absent from the education system - and it can be read in 30 minutes. Essential!

We all know what time it is, but we have forgotten why it is what time it is.

Lovely little book that describes the interactions between the sun, moon and earth (e.g. eclipses, solstices, precession, seasons etc) with every second page an illustration.
