Cosmologist Sean Carroll attacks -- in an entertaining and thought-provoking tour through the nature of time and the universe -- a deceptively simple question: Why does time exist at all? The potential answers point to a surprising view of the nature of the universe, and our place in it.
His book on cosmology and the arrow of time, From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time, was published in 2010. He keeps a regular blog at Cosmic Variance.
"For anyone who ever wondered about the nature of time and how it influences our universe, [From Here to Eternity] is a must read. It is beautifully written, lucid, and deep."Kip Thorne
