Out Of Time
Posted by Literary Titan
Out of Time: Predicting the Science of Future Centuries and Millenia educates readers on the universe and how it is infinite and eternal, but scientifically created. It is written by Australian author Rodney Bartlett, who describes himself as a ‘citizen scientist’. It is clear that the author is very passionate and knowledgeable about this subject.
Out of Time has a simple to follow structure; it is structured into chapters, sections and subsections. These are all detailed in the Table of Contents at the beginning of the text, enabling the reader to select specific chapters or subsections to read. Some of the chapters are long, whilst others are quite short, dependent on the subject. Overall the text is well structured, and tighter editing of the sentences would enhance its readability.
In this illuminating book the author switches from using scientific and mathematical phrases and jargon to more conversational language, which keeps things moving but consistently informative. The choice of more informal language allows the book to be more accessible to a wider audience.
I appreciated the numerous references provided throughout the book, which indicates that the authors has researched this topic thoroughly, and it allowed me to follow the subject in other text which greatly expanded my understanding of the ideas discussed. I think that consistent formatting in the reference lists would allow readers to find the article or book easier if they want to do further research.
There are multiple references to well-known scientists throughout the book such as; Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Galileo, and Kepler. This is helpful in linking older scientific research with newer scientific theories and theories and I liked how this placed the work in historical context and gave the impression that this idea transcends time.
Out of Time: Predicting the Science of Future Centuries and Millenia is a well-researched and highly enlightening book. The author makes a very complex subject accessible to everyday readers. It is always a pleasure to read a book written by such a passionate author.
