Timekeepers

Garfield brings the reader on a journey across time, mainly in the Western tradition, with stops at calendars, clocks, trains, personal injury, the Beatles, and much more. Each chapter unpacks a bit more of what it means to be a time-bound being, with stories, reminiscences, science, sociology, and just enough end notes to give the interested reader more to go on. A great book for gift-giving, or for high-school students ready to adult non-fiction.
