From the reviews:
"In this philosophical rumination on time, Mainzer delves rigorously into time's logical constructs as they have been devised over the history of occidental science." Booklist
"Klaus Mainzer ... provides a brief overview of the concept of time from antiquity to the present. ... The Little Book of Time succinctly and clearly covers human concepts of time, from the ancients to Newton to Einstein's theory of relativity and the conceptions of time in quantum mechanics, with its profound consequences for modern cosmology." (Science in Africa, October, 2002)
"Time is a big subject ... . The book will probably be interesting to enthusiasts ... . The flavor is philosophical, which is not surprising since Mainzer is a philosopher. ... the book is a nice summary." (Thomas R. Berger, MathDL, January, 2004)
