Sep 26, 2013 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
A fascinating meditation on time. Covers early attempts to create calendars and watches and ends with a beautiful chapter on relativity. These are better than textbooks. Textbooks are written with the assumption that there will be a professor there to force you to use the book... with grades and diploma as hostages. These books had to be written with enough style and flair to keep the reader interested for the simple sake of discovery. The difference is astonishing.
