Praise

“The hyper-density of this book made my brain feel simultaneously wiped out and dazzled.”
            -Boston Globe Best Science Books of 2011
 
“Radical . . .  A surprising and unorthodox work disguised in the jacket of a popular science book, Cycles of Time should prove both deeply enlightening and just as deeply mystifying for anyone who dares to follow along.”
            -Peter Woit, The Wall Street Journal
 
“An intellectual thrill ride . . . As Penrose builds a solid foundation for his argument in analyzing universal entropic accumulation and Newton’s Second Law, the reader senses something tremendous looming—mysterious and compelling as a black hole . . . A cosmological page-turner.”
            -Y. S. Fing, Washington Independent Review of Books
 
“If you’ll forgive a skiing metaphor, Cycles of Time is a black diamond of a book. But like all steep slopes, sometimes you take a moment from your struggles and look up, and in front of you is an utterly gorgeous view.”
            -Anthony Doerr, Boston Globe
 
“Profound . . . This fascinating book will surely become a classic in the history of cosmology.”
            -Choice
 
“Controversial but intriguing . . . Well worth the effort.”
            –Kirkus
 
“Intriguing . . . Penrose makes provocative arguments for his challenging new theory.”                  
           -Publishers Weekly
