That hour that drags, that day you can't wait forand those months of blissful sun that you count down to! All these things have been made measurable by clocks and calendars.

This fascinating new book in the You Wouldn't Want to Live Without series delves into the history of clocks and calendars. From early astronomical observations to recent technological developments, this book explores the wonderful journey of timekeeping.
