Famous writer HG Wells wrote about it:MoreA classic on the meaning of Time, and a scientific approach to premonitions by one of the most famous and respected aeronautical engineers of its time, this book moved the scientific world when it was published.

Famous writer HG Wells wrote about it: I find it a fantastically interesting book. It has stirred my imagination vividly, and I think most imaginative people will be stirred by the queer things he has advanced in it.The New York Times wrote. It will probably take more than one reading for the student to familiarize himself with the new and vast horizons opened to his speculative gaze. But the effort will be well worth while.

For in linking, by implication, Einstein with Berkeley, and the experimental physiologist with the believer in the immortality of the soul, the author of An Experiment with Time has evolved a Weltanschauung profoundly stirring and fascinating in its implications.The author, in the preface, tell us the premise of the book: It has been rather surprising to discover how many persons there are who, while willing to concede that we habitually observe events before they occur, suppose that such prevision may be treated as a Minor logical difficulty, to be met by some trifling readjustment in one or another of our sciences or by the addition of a dash of transcendentalism to our metaphysics.

It may well be emphasized that no tinkering or doctoring of that kind could avail in the smallest degree. If prevision be a fact, it is a fact which destroys absolutely the entire basis of all our past opinions, of the universe. Bear in mind, for example, that the foreseen event may be avoided. What, then, is its structure? I would suggest that we are lucky, on the whole, to be able to replace our vanished foundations by a system so simple as the serialism described in this book.
