Best Books of 2016
BOSTON GLOBE * THE ATLANTIC


From the acclaimed bestselling author of The Information and Chaos comes this enthralling history of time travel—a concept that has preoccupied physicists and storytellers over the course of the last century.


James Gleick delivers a mind-bending exploration of time travel—from its origins in literature and science to its influence on our understanding of time itself. Gleick vividly explores physics, technology, philosophy, and art as each relates to time travel and tells the story of the concept's cultural evolutions—from H.G. Wells to Doctor Who, from Proust to Woody Allen. He takes a close look at the porous boundary between science fiction and modern physics, and, finally, delves into what it all means in our own moment in time—the world of the instantaneous, with its all-consuming present and vanishing future.

    I am one third into this book and I still have no clue where it wants to go and I'm pretty sure neither did Gleick when writing it. This is not about the author building up towards a climax, this is about meaningless referencing whichever passage he could find that remotely could be interpreted as being related to time travel. I loved Chaos but thought Information was really weak. Unfortunately this is more akin to the latter.
