Product Overview

We think the United States runs on "time," yet most of us don't know where "time" came from, why we think it's so important. In "On Time: Seduction of the Human Spirit," author Jeffery Raymond tells the story of our "time," how it came to be, and how we can best use this human invention. Raymond reviews physics, psychology, and popular culture, asking the taunting questions and fearlessly defying cultural assumptions about time as it relates to the topics in the following chapters: Watching the Clock Gods and Time Time Trials Big Boys, Big Bangs and Black Holes At This Moment Digital Time Time Wars And many more "On Time" is a direct challenge to the commonly held notions of what time is, how we use "time" in our culture, its origins, and its flaws. We all think we know what time is-but do we?
