This book is not well written. On almost every page, an idea is mentioned and then we are told that they will discuss this at a later chapter. This is constant! Any writing textbook will tell you that this is bad writing. Don't bring it up until you are ready to discuss it. Also, the text has many LONG lists of movies or TV shows that talked about time travel. Who cares? This is not giving me any information I can use, or expanding my knowledge. I got a little more than 1/3 through this book and gave up. Not worth reading.

This Book Is From The Future-A Journey Through Portals,
Relativity, Worm Holes by Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman
explores the history and science of time travel, wormholes,
parallel universes, time warps and coexisting timelines.
The book begins by defining time from years to the yoctosecond
which is beyond the shortest time measurable by any current
machine or process.

The authors explain that entropy does not work in reverse.
The forward arrow of time increases entropy but time does
not flow in the reverse direction. A hot pot of water gets
cold due to entropy but a cold pot of water cannot get hot
without some other interfering factor not in the original
equation.

Jones and Flaxman explain how Godel worked with
Albert Einstein to formulate a theory that time travel
into the past was possible provided that the universe
was rotating. Godel hypothesized riding a circular or
spiral path allowing him to go back to the past and
return to the present. Physicists would later argue
that Godel's universe, if finite, would remove the
time travel aspect completely making everyone more
comfortable with the theory.

The book depicts the Lorenztian wormhole pictorially
and explains that the black hole would be the entry
point with the white hole as an exit point. The practical
implementation problem is that entering into a black hole
will meet with infinite gravity and be crushed or stretched
into nothingness or an incomprehensible gravitational
effect.

The Casimir effect proved that negative energy densities can
happen in nature.

Format: Paperback
Great topic. Too bad it was written for fourth graders. Well, actually written BY fourth graders. Bad writing, terrible editing, typos everywhere. Ideas don't follow through. Science is mixed up with and confused by "science". The "guest writers" are even worse. I could go on and on. I might detail the horrors of this mega-piece later, but trust me, it's a jaw-dropping creation of stupidity.

I really liked this book! I don't know what made me want to read about time travel. (too much Fringe?) ...but whatever the reason, I'm glad I read this book. Written in an entertaining way. Fun read!
