Thanks to Karl Giberson

(professor of physics at Eastern Nazarene College, Director of the Forum on Faith and Science, Gordon College, author of "Worlds Apart: The Unholy War Between Science and Religion", and winner of a 1996 Templeton Award for an Outstanding Course in Science and Religion)

for writing this up for Books and Culture (the only great magazine left that even in their new relaunch make you pay to read full articles like this online)..
... and putting it free on his own website here.

Lessig would say "amen."

"This book," [Pickover] tells us in the preface,
"is mostly about the science of time travel and touches only
briefly on mysticism. However, the line between science and
mysticism sometimes grows thin."
