"Quite a few feel that an overhaul of what we mean by 'time' could lead to the next great leap in physics. Among them is Lee Smolin, of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada. Smolin argues that science is blighted by what he says are unreal and inessential conceptions of time. He insists that 'time is real' and that its reformulation could be central to finding the long-sought after 'theory of everything'.
"In Time Reborn, he offers an entertaining, head-spinning and, yes, timely blend of philosophy, science, and speculation to put the Now back into physics."
