"The book is a tour de force. Price addresses some of the most difficult issues in physics and philosophy, and offers highly original solutions. Yet the book is written in a style which assumes no previous knowledge, and will be accessible to any reader who is prepared to think hard."--Times Literary Supplement
is...a highly original and important contribution to the philosophy and physics of time. It is path-breaking in many areas, since it covers topics rarely treated by philosophers and offers novel solutions to many problems."--British Journal for the Philosophy of Science

"[Huw Price] has taken a subject understood by a few experts and thrown open the door to the masses....Enjoy it as a feast for the imagination."--The Sunday Times
"Price's book is a useful addition to the literature on time, particularly as it reveals the influence of modern science on the way a philosopher thinks."--New Scientist
"Succeeds with great clarity....The author has done physicists a great service in laying out so clearly and critically the nature of the various time-asymmetry problems of physics."--Nature
