The bestselling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics takes us on an enchanting, consoling journey to discover the meaning of time'
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. With his extraordinary charm and sense of wonder, bringing together science, philosophy and art, Carlo Rovelli unravels this mystery.
Enlightening and consoling, The Order of Time shows that to understand ourselves we need to reflect on time -- and to understand time we need to reflect on ourselves. Translated by Simon Carnell and Erica Segre

Blending meticulous research with information gleaned from memoirs, diaries, letters, novels and other secondary sources, Bloody Brilliant Women uses the stories of some extraordinary lives to tell the tale of 20th and 21st century Britain.
Well researched and eloquently written, this is an original history book with something for everyone.
How did we get to a place where bullshit is not just rife, but apparently so effective that it has become the communications strategy of our times? Written with the generous intelligent and wry humour that admirers of his broadcasting will recognise. Essential reading for anyone involved in communication.
This is a book I would highly recommend for anyone who is interested in how their kids think -it's particularly useful if you have siblings who are very different from one another and you're wondering why the same techniques of parenting don't seem to work!
It helps both you, and your child, understand what motivates them and therefore leads to greater empathy and a better relationship. Worked for us!
