About this title:
Synopsis:
Questions how seconds, minutes and hours were agreed, why there is no decimal time, why there are seven days in a week, twelve months in a year and not thirteen are all raised and answered as Waugh looks at every aspect of time - from the beginning and the Big Bang to clock time, calendar and the end itself, the Big Crunch.
