Abstract
Notes
Hans Christian von Baeyer.
22 cm.
I read the paperback. It's rather entertaining. Formulas are written out as sentences, and advanced math is avoided completely. The chapters explore time's arrow and entropy through the history of the relevant physicists, complete with plenty of imagery.
