When I review non-fiction books, I have two basic criteria: 1) is it factual and 2) is it written well?

From Eternity to Here is a well-written book about the theory of time and a skull crusher for non-scientists such as myself. Is it factual? I guess so .. maybe? There are so many competing theories of the Universe that I don't think I could make a solid judgment either way.

Since Carroll takes great pains to point out the conjectural and unproven nature of many of the theories in the book, I trust that he's probably writing good science. It's only when I read books that are above my head but that also too boldly venture into Lala Land without the accompanying warnings that I get worried. Carroll's warnings are ample and the topic -- Time itself -- is incredibly interesting. I will never look at it the same way again.
