  • Modern physics has found its poet. A captivating, fascinating, profoundly beautiful book. . . Rovelli is a wonderfully humane, gentle and witty guide for he is as much philosopher and poet as he is a scientist

    John Banville, Irish Times
  • Wonderful. . . Time is something we think we know about instinctively; here he shows how profoundly strange it really is

    Philip Pullman, Guardian
  • Full of staggering revelations... I could (and will) read and think about such things again and again until they begin to sink in

    Maggie Nelson, New York Times
  • This book has been a kind of bible for me. When life feels strange, Rovelli's books remind me that there is beauty in the strangeness. The Order of Time is one of those books that I will always go back to

    Johny Pitts
  • Extraordinary. . . you should read it

    Nick Hornby, Believer
  • Brings the most difficult ideas alive in clear, appealing language. It is as close as I've come to a physics lesson that almost suggests the meaning of life

    Rory Stewart
  • Meet the new Stephen Hawking. . . I've never seen special relativity explained so well, never visualised it less fuzzily, never felt such a jolt of shock at what it implies

    James McConnachie, Sunday Times
  • A dizzying, poetic work in which I found myself abandoning everything I thought I knew about time

    Charlotte Higgins, Guardian
  • Enlightening... gives poetic voice to the common human experience of moving through time, while simultaneously leaving the reader much more equipped to understand how exactly that happens. . . A resounding affirmation of the humanity behind science

    Time magazine, Best Nonfiction Books of the 2010s
  • I consider Carlo Rovelli to be a poet as much as a physicist. . . Everybody should read this book

    Es Devlin
