Our book for the next TWO months is Why Time Flies, by Alan Burdick.
It is not a deep, complex science book, but provides many insights into phenomena we are all familiar with and yet know little about—time.
Discussion note for Why Time Flies:
We will need to focus on discussion on the book—rather than on lengthy personal anecdotes. Of course, it’s fine to briefly describe how your experience supports a concept in the book or led to your reaction to part of the book. But the reason this group discusses science books–as opposed to science–is so that we all have a common background—the book’s content—as the basis for discussion. In a book like this—on a topic we all have experienced—it may be challenging to keep our discussion on track. But we can do it!
We will discuss the first half of the book in February and the second half in March.
