Narrator Anna Ploszajski exudes the passion of master watchmaker and author Rebecca Struthers, who expounds upon horology, the study and measurement of time and the art of making clocks and watches. From water clocks, sundials, and hourglasses to church clocks, from pocket watches to wristwatches, listeners will learn about gears, springs, and all the things that make watches tick from someone who crafts the devices by hand. Ploszajski's crisp, polished tones are perfect for this history of chronometers from their very beginnings to their uses for organizing work and social time, as scientific instruments, and as essential fashion accessories. After listening to this fascinating history, the listener will never look at a timepiece the same way again. M.B.K.
