So You Created a Wormhole: The Time Traveler’s Guide to Time Travel is an entertaining yet educational romp through related physics and pop culture. Where else can someone learn how to travel back to prehistoric times to create a battery out of dinosaur drippings that one steps in as the animal changes but humans stepping in it are universal? This is a guide to General Relativity and Quantum Physics through the excellent adventures of Bill and Ted, and the DeLorean adventures of McFly and Doc Brown, etc. Included are helpful tips on surviving all sorts of eras and key illustrations and detailed blueprint on what to do in a crisis like building a Rube Goldberg Time Machine that rivals his Smithsonian alarm clock. Mindful of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy though not a novel, readers who appreciate an irreverent frolic through time and space will want to learn how to create a wormhole and other essential facts of surviving a relatively quantum universe.
