Time reborn: From the Crisis in Physics to the Future of the Universe by Lee Smolin

"If you are looking for a bracing alternative vision of physics built from the ground up, Smolin's "Time reborn" will take you to the mountaintop." -- NPR.

Smolin's groundbreaking theory postulates that physical laws can evolve over time and the future is not yet determined. Newton's fundamental laws may not remain so fundamental." Time reborn" serves as a popular primer and investigation of time, both what it is and how the true nature of it impacts our world.

"One of the essential books of the twenty-first century . . . Smolin provides a much-needed dose of clarity about time, with implications that go far beyond physics to economics, politics, and personal philosophy." -- Jaron Lanier, author of You Are Not a Gadget.
