I discovered the The Order of Time by Carlo Rovelli a few years ago and it reignited my interest in Quantum Physics. This is the original review that reeled me in. The title caught my attention initially because the focus was on the concept of time. Time is a mysterious topic. It changes in unexpected circumstances, it’s perceived in different ways and scientists still ponder what it actually is. It turns out that time and quantum physics go hand in hand. The book is in three sections; the understanding of time in modern physics, what happens without time and finally the latest theories on time including Rovelli’s own research into Quantum Gravity which present some of the most recent theories in the field.
