In this fascinating book, the renowned astrophysicist J. Richard Gott leads time travel out of the world of H. G. Wells and into the realm of scientific possibility. Building on theories posited by Einstein and advanced by scientists such as Stephen Hawking and Kip Thorne, Gott explains how time travel can actually occur. He describes, with boundless enthusiasm and humor, how travel to the future is not only possible but has already happened, and he contemplates whether travel to the past is also conceivable. Notable not only for its extraordinary subject matter and scientific brilliance, Time Travel in Einstein’s Universe is a delightful and captivating exploration of the surprising facts behind the science fiction of time travel.

From the Back Cover:

"Time Travel in Einstein's Universe is engrossing, mind-bending, and original. It put me through a time warp for several nights running (while I was reading it), so I ended up losing time (and sleep) over it. But I really couldn't put it down. Richard Gott is one of the cleverest cosmologists of our time, and the voyage he takes us on is well worthwhile." –Richard Preston, author of The Hot Zone and The Cobra Event

"In this book Gott offers an excellent exploration of the concept of time travel. Most interesting is the 'universe creating itself' idea. He drives the point back to a very deep level of physical philosophy without losing the popular reader. Gott is impressive both because of his insights and because of his ability to articulate them so far as to make the interested layperson follow him." –Hugh Downs

"J. Richard Gott is one of the most original thinkers of our time. In this intriguing exposition on time travel, based in part on his newly discovered solution to Einstein's equations, Professor Gott empowers the reader to explore this fascinating frontier where science fiction becomes science fact." –Neil Degrasse Tyson, astrophysicist and director, Hayden Planetarium, New York City
