The Mystery of Time : We all know that time is the template with which we define our lives. We also know it is on our side, is up, and flies, especially when we're having fun. There are bath time and bedtime, good times and bad, an entire biblical catalogue from the book of Ecclesiastes. But what is it? Where did time come from and where does it go? With more than 200 colorful and instructive illustrations and fact boxes, in language that is lively and accessible, The Mystery of Time traces the story of humanity's struggle to come to terms with the concept of time: to measure it, to use it, to standardize it, to beat it, and finally to understand it.
