This review is from: Timeless Reality : Symmetry, Simplicity, and Multiple Universes (Hardcover)
I like certain Victor Stenger's books. Who possibly can be better in presenting such subjects of science? After all, author is a professor of psychology as well. As Bertrand Russell wrote in 1950: "philosophy aims at a theoretical understanding of the structure of the world: on the other hand, it tries to discover and inculcate the best possible way of life..it can give to the individual a just measure of himself in relation to the whole history of man and to the astronomical cosmos". "Timeless Reality" is absolutely a "meisterstuck" dedicated to reader who is not afraid of mathematical formulas and equations. Learn from professor Stenger about time symmetry solving mysteries of quantum double nature and that cause not always precedes effect. Find more: brief history of philosophy, every topic of modern particle physics related to cosmology - explained and repeated each time when needed. If you have not find easy and convincing explanation of EPR paradox so far, you will find it here, one of the most interesting! Large sections of "Timeless Reality" successfully navigate through this hazy subject! Yes, it is a popular science book at its best, loaded with names, properties and behaviors of many exotic particles. Estimated level of difficulty rests somewhere between Roger Penrose's "The Emperor's New Mind" (quantum theory content) and Alan Guth's "The Inflationary Universe" or Lee Smolin's "Three Roads to Quantum Gravity".

Prof Stenger is right, Reality (Universe) is Timeless. However in this timeless reality time exists: time is a numerical order of change of timeless reality that we measure with clocks. This is Sorli Srecko view on time which is in accord with experimental data and with mathematical formalism of Special Theory of Relativity X4 = ict where t is numerical order of material change i.e motion.

You have read another interesting book about time. Good for you.
And good review of yours.
