ABOUT TIME A History of Civilization in Twelve Clocks

by | Read by David Rooney

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

In his jovial British accent, David Rooney narrates his fascinating audiobook about clocks, time, and human history. His voice lends wit and sometimes humor, which both enhance the work. He opens with an account of a tragic aviation accident and explains how clock-based technology might have prevented it. Many listeners will remember when Korean Airlines Flight 007 flew off course into Soviet airspace and was shot down by fighter planes in 1983. The audiobook is divided into chapters describing the role of time and timekeeping throughout the millennia, and discussing how human inventiveness has advanced technology in general. Listeners will be entertained--and may never look at their watches in the same way again. D.G.P. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2022]
