That hour that drags, that day you can't wait for—and those months of blissful sun that you count down to! All these things have been made measurable by clocks and calendars. Although time may not always be on our side, without clocks and calendars we would forget birthdays, be late for appointments, and miss out on important things in life. This fascinating new book in the You Wouldn't Want to Live Without series delves into the history of clocks and calendars. From early astronomical observations to recent technological developments, this book explores the wonderful journey of timekeeping.
