Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
only an intelligent friend that enjoys both history and science
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the timeline of timekeeping and it's effects on society
Any additional comments?
honestly I think Adam frank did a better job explaining time that Sean Carroll did in his book. The two books are very different though

This book is not for those who like fiction and non-fiction blended and still called non-fiction. I found it highly distracting and highly questionable that the author started off every chapter with little stories about ancient people. I became instantly turned off to how I was forced to sit through subjective thought exercises as to how humans may have perceived time in the past.
Occasionally the author actually got into science, verifiable, not dumbed-down science and it was wonderful until he went into his next stories. Being a history "buff" I also found the stories highly questionable as they did not have archeological facts behind them.
If you are new to the topic of time and prefer more fantasy with your science, this is the book for you.
If you are already familiar with cosmology, and general life sciences, STAY AWAY. This book will insult your intelligence and keep teasing you with good science among fiction.
I will be seeking to return this book.
