"Falk's book is what Hawking's Brief History [of Time] should have been," declares the Ottawa Citizen; Sir Martin Rees calls it "unputdownable". How did our species first become aware of time's passage? Could the "flow" of time be an illusion? Is time travel possible? Drawing on the latest research in physics, cosmology, psychology, and anthropology, In Search of Time is an extraordinary journey along a most curious dimension.
No scientific quest is as compelling as the search for the elusive "Theory of Everything" – a theory so concise it could fit on a T-shirt. Universe on a T-Shirt tells the fascinating story of that quest, from its roots in ancient Greece to the breakthroughs of Newton, Maxwell, and Einstein; from the discovery of the atom to string theory and beyond. Winner of the 2002 Science in Society Journalism Award from the Canadian Science Writers Association, the Montreal Gazette calls it "an excellent introduction to the logic of science and the frontiers of physics."
