Description

Winner of the Specsavers Audiobook of the Year 2018. 

Penguin presents the audio edition of The Order of Time by Carlo Rovelli. The best-selling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics takes us on an enchanting journey to discover the meaning of time. 

Time is a mystery that does not cease to puzzle us. Philosophers, artists and poets have long explored its meaning while scientists have found that its structure is different from the simple intuition we have of it. From Boltzmann to quantum theory, from Einstein to loop quantum gravity, our understanding of time has been undergoing radical transformations. Time flows at different speeds in different places, the past and the future differ far less than we might think and the very notion of the present evaporates in the vast universe. 

With his extraordinary charm and sense of wonder, bringing together science, philosophy and art, Carlo Rovelli unravels this mystery, inviting us to imagine a world where time is in us and we are not in time.

Commentaires

"A global superstar...Rovelli is making the grammar of the universe accessible to a new generation." (Channel 4 News)

"Benedict Cumberbatch's warm, resonant voice makes him a very fine narrator." (The Times)

"Cumberbatch possesses a deep and rich voice and reads the text in a precise but unhurried manner, with the result that we feel as if we are getting an exposition by an erudite but gentle teacher." (The New York Times)

One of the few science books makes you emotional

This book does not only describe the current understanding of time and its relation to reality, but also sparks an emotional and objective meaning to life. Benedict Cumberbatch's narration made this book shine.

Extraordinary

I confess that i was sceptical that such a short, popular science treatment could shed much light on such a complex subject. I was wrong. Rovelli writes beautifully and the breadth of his culture is amazing. His departure point is his day job as a theoretical physicist, but he jumps effortlessly between the ancient history of science (Anaximander is a favorite), philosophy, religious texts (Christian, Buddhist and Hindu), literature (Shakespeare, Proust .. . ) and music (from Bach to the Grateful Dead). Truly extraordinary. And of course how can you beat Benedict Cumberbatch as a reader?

good writer

Rovelli is definitely one of the more talented of writers among physicists who write popular books. He also accomplishes a treatise on time more successfully than other efforts I have read.

It's time see IT clearly

Very clear, yet very subtle explanation of what we are made of through the lens of time.

The poetic and at the end of it, a very moving, melodic, melancholical, memorable reminder about our potentials and limitations of what we consider as ourself bound by our memories, our body and what we sense as TIME.

I listened to it at least two or three times, just wishing for further insight.

I wish Carlo Rovelli would have read it himself as I heard his first book in his heavy Italian accent with a charm. Although, this does not take away the marvelous delivery by the narrator.

One of the most impactful book I have listened to in last few months.

Overdramatized

The sound is as its a bestime story, certainly a disservice to an interrsting read.

What a joy

I always wonder what is “Time”? This book provide an explanation based on previous scientific knowledge and I enjoy reading it.

The voice of Benedict Cumberbatch is just like a massage to my ears. What else can I say?

Lovely Book about Time and its Order

Now I understand that time is far more complex than we think it to be. For long I've held the sense that we always living in the past; every action happens in the past, that the only thing ever in the present is the thoughts we originate. It's really a nice book and I enjoyed listening to it

Enjoyable, intriguiging read on time.

Loved the performance of Benedict Cumberbatch. Warm voice and nice rhythm.

Refreshing combination of physics and poetry.

Not a technical book, rather a nice and thought-provoking read with interesting views and theories on time.

Almost lyrical explanation of the mystery of time.

I think they gave the time stone to the right guy. :D
Great book, though.

Very interesting, but you need to concentrate well

... to be able to follow. Maybe it's not an ideal fit for an Audiobook but Benedict Cumberbatch's performance is very nice.

Hochinteressant

Ein überaus interessantes Hörbuch für alle am Thema Interessierten (physikalische Vorbildung schadet nicht!), gesprochen von einem Sprecher mit sehr angenehmer Stimme (bekannter Schauspieler - Sherlock). Für mich: Empfehlenswert!

Great!

This is probably the best book about time I've ever listened to.
Also, every book should always be narrated by Benedikt Cumberbatch.
Incredible performance!

Captivating Performance by Benedict Cumberbatch

"The Order of Time" is an intriguing book about our (commonly false) conceptions of time and how they shape our existence. Sometimes, it may be a bit heavy on the physics parts for laypeople. However, the conclusions Rovelli reaches are fascinating and absolutely mindbending. And Benedict Cumberbatch's voice fits the overall atmosphere of the story perfectly.

A definitive Must Read for all philosophy-interested people out there who like to be challenged in their way of thinking!
