    A reviewer

    The author illustrates through the story line that time travel is truly the personal experience of each time traveler. Through the story, it is easy to see how little changes to the past will lead the traveler into another dimension different from the dimension then the one the traveler had originated from. The author leaves the reader looking forward to what comes next and completely pulls the reader into the story through one's individual imagination. It does make perfect sense that a person traveling through time cannot rewrite history or change the future of things to come but can only alter their own dimensional universe as they know it. This is an excellent read and although it is science fiction based, it does parallel with the theories and understanding of time travel concepts so widely discussed in cosmology. This book leaves the reader with many thoughts to ponder.

    The last time I was able to find this book ...

    The last time I was able to find this book, I bought all five copies that existed in the shop. Over the years they have disappeared into the collections of my (reader) friends never to be heard from again. It is an easy read and presents time travel concepts in an easy to understand fashion. It has also ruined many Sci-Fi show's time-travel episodes for me. This is because the episodes contain such obvious flaws that I now know of by reading this book.
