A pop science look at time travel technology, from Einstein to Ronald Mallett to present day experiments. Forget fiction: time travel is real.

In How to Build a Time Machine , Brian Clegg provides an understanding of what time is and how it can be manipulated. He explores the fascinating world of physics and the remarkable possibilities of real time travel that emerge from quantum entanglement, superluminal speeds, neutron star cylinders and wormholes in space. With the fascinating paradoxes of time travel echoing in our minds will we realize that travel into the future might never be possible? Or will we realize there is no limit on what can be achieved, and take on this ultimate challenge? Only time will tell.

This book was very informative and fascinating. "How to Build a Time Machine" is full of explanations on how time travel might/can be achieved and also has information about scientists who tried to figure out time travel. I learned so many new things from this book.

"Time travel is real. On a small scale we can do it today. Should the human race survive long enough, it seems an almost inevitable part of our future. And if that doesn't inspire a sense of wonder, nothing will.
In the end, only time will tell."
