Summary

Earphones Award Winner (AudioFile Magazine)
This is the dramatic and inspirational first-person story of theoretical physicist Dr. Ronald Mallett, who recently discovered the basic equations for a working time machine that he believes can be used as a transport vehicle to the past. Combining elements of Rocket Boys and Elegant Universe, Time Traveler follows Mallett's discovery of Einstein's work on space-time, his study of Godel's work on a solution of Einstein's equation that might allow for time travel, and his own research in theoretical physics spanning 30 years that culminated in his recent discovery of the effects of circulating laser light and its application to time travel.
The foundation for Mallett's historic time-travel work is Einstein's theory of general relativity, a sound platform for any physicist. Through his years of reading and studying Einstein, Mallett became a buff well before he had any notion of the importance of the grand old relativist's theories to his own career.
One interesting subtext to the story is Mallett's identification with, and keen interest in, Einstein. Mallett provides easy-to-understand explanations of the famous physicist's seminal work.

Critic reviews

"Physicist Mallett's theory that "space and time can be manipulated" to make time travel possible has gained national media attention. His research and theories flow nicely through this easy-to-read autobiography." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Dion Graham is wholly convincing as he relates Mallett's memories of growing up black and fatherless in the Bronx. He's equally comfortable with the technical language the author uses to describe the Einsteinian concepts of his time machine. Graham turns this improbable story into a riveting mix of personal narrative and cutting-edge science." ( AudioFile)

Moving Story, Fascinating Science

I really enjoyed Dion Graham's beautiful narration of Time Traveler. Mallett's memoir is inspiring and I could understand his clear explanations of Einstein's theories that make time travel possible. I would recommend this audio book to anyone.

One of the best books I've listened to

This is a capivating and moving memoir and there is no need for knowledge in physics to understand and enjoy this book. Couldn't put it down. Kept my interest throughout. The narrator was one of the best I've heard on Audible. I will definitely look into other books by Dion Graham, narrator.
