Book Description

Dating back to ancient history, humans have been captivated by the concept of time. From the earliest Egyptian sundials to today’s state-of-the-art atomic clocks, we have meticulously chronicled its passage and pondered its effect on our lives. In spite of its constant presence in our day-to-day routines, time remains a mysterious and often confounding force.
