The Order of Time
- Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch
- Written by: Carlo Rovelli
- Narrated by: Benedict Cumberbatch
- Length: 4 hrs and 18 mins
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 a different speed 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.
This book will change your perspective on life.

Dr. Strange talking about 'time'
A science book that is extremely thought provoking, leading to introspection. Amazing narration by Benedict Cumberbatch. Glad that I chose this audiobook as my first.
Chapter 9, 10 are more technically taxing for me. But Carlo already warned that.
A must read / listen.
