Publisher's Summary

In this brief but rigorous examination of the concept of time-travel, it is clearly stated what time-travel would be, were it possible. It is thereby shown that the very concept of time-travel is incoherent.

Utterly cogent and definitive

Where does Time Travel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

#1 among all the time-travel books known to me

What other book might you compare Time Travel to and why?

Our Knowledge of the External World, by Bertrand Russell, since they are both commonsense-based but also scientifically and philosophically informed.

Would you be willing to try another one of John-Michael Kuczynski’s performances?

Yes.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes. The author is making it clear what a complete fraud most discussions of time-travel are. He reduces the issues to a few tautologies, successfully showing the palaver that passes for alternatives views to be the pseudo-intellectual death throes of impotence that (deep down) everyone knows them to be.

Any additional comments?

Yes. The author is a master of his craft and he proved his point 100 times over, but he needs to learn a thing or two about sound-engineering. Great voice thought, but he needs to relax. Also, the discussion of Relativity Theory was mind-blowingly brilliant. The author can expect to get some flack from the convenience store intellectual crowd. Which only affirms his position.

the truth about time travel!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes, discussions of time travel tend to be dominated by illiterate self-(un)taught losers who jabber nonsense about quantum physics. Kuczynski breaks it down.

What did you like best about this story?

The part where Kuczynski was discussing how the non-existence of an optical test of motion entails the framework invariance of physical law

Would you be willing to try another one of John-Michael Kuczynski’s performances?

Yes, but this was not a particularly good performance; he was nervous and spoke too fast

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

the direction of time

Any additional comments?

this book is a litmus test. people who can think will like it. people who want to live in a bubble of convenience-store slogans won't.
