In his last previous book, his 2006 The Trouble with Physics, Dr. Lee Smolin generated the so-called "string theory wars" by arguing that physics research was being hampered by the dominance of largely untested theories. Now, seven years later, he makes similarly audacious claims about the nature of time. Dr. Smolin admits that the scientific case for time being an illusion is formidable, but argues that if fundamental physics and cosmology are to advance, time must be taken as real. This revolutionary theory flies in the face of most physics research and is certain to generate controversy in the scientific community.
