A very interesting read about how the human knowledge developed over a period of time. I would definitely recommend this book for any body who wants to know about the progress of a quest to understand "Time". This book takes you progressively through various theories, their shortcomings and advantages and the reasons as to why they were rejected or accepted over others. The last couple of chapters in the book also mentions about the string theory and the reason as to why it is gaining momentum.

All these development indicated that humans have always been curious to find the answers to the origin of the universe and the laws governing it. In my personal opinion this quest is one of the most complex path leading to the "Super Time", the one which is beyond time - also know as "God". Many of the ancient Indian scriptures already mentioned the well known theories like - "Big Bang" and "Big Crunch". These scriptures also mentions that even the time did not exists before the creation of the universe. One possible way to proceed towards the quest of creation of universe, is to look at ancient Indian scriptures like Vedas, Upanashidas and Puranas as they symbolically presents answers to all these questions, in light with the current scientific observations and connect the dots.
