Reviews

"Our experience of time is not the same as time itself; the former is largely our creation. French philosopher Henri Bergson once publicly debated this point with Einstein - and lost. If only he'd had recourse to this book, written by one of the first neuroscientists to ask how the human brain encodes time. Take that, Albert!" -- Science books we're keen to read in 2017 - New Scientist
"... a readable exploration of how the architecture of the human brain shapes our understanding of the nature of time." -- The Bookseller
"Apparently elastic and possibly illusory, time is a puzzle to physicists and neuroscientists alike. Dean Buonomano straddles the divide, invoking cutting-edge theory and research as he wrestles with the often glaring mismatch between physical and 'felt' time. The result is immensely engaging..." -- Nature
"Buonomano's ambition is inspiring and his writing is rich, combining a readable style with illustrative examples... it [Your Brain is a Time Machine] hits the ambitious target of being both thorough and accessible." -- Chemistry World
"... nothing if not an entertaining read." -- Nature Physics
