Ron met Regina at a chess tournament when he was fourteen years old. When he went to high school, he found out that she was teaching advanced physics to seniors. He immediately worked as hard as he could to sign up for the class. Four years later after Ron graduated, he moved to Connecticut to find work. One day he came home and saw Regina sitting outside his apartment. She promised to pay his tuition as long as he went to college. This inspired Ron to pursue a college education in mathematics, while learning quantum physics from Regina at the same time.
When Ron graduated college, he decided that he wanted to pursue a PhD in mathematics until he met (and eventually married) Sheila, who persuaded him to use his mathematical models to predict future investments in stocks. Meanwhile, Regina was creating machinery to see into the future but she had to keep it a secret because the FBI ransacked her lab and the government labeled her as a terrorist. When Regina invited Ron to work with her to help develop her secret machinery, Ron had to decide if he wanted to continue living the life of a rich and powerful businessman with Sheila in New York, or if he wanted to go back to work with Regina to help build her machine that would predict the future.
The title of this story fits very well with the book, because the title is Timewise and the story was all about predicting the future. Ron’s mathematical models and Regina's scientific theories both contributed to very interesting information about predicting the future through science and math. I enjoyed learning about different theories from quantum physics when I was reading this book. Regina explained a lot of interesting theories to Ron, like the theory that awareness creates time. I also enjoyed reading about how Ron was able to use his mathematical models when he was creating fractal models to predict future investments. Fractal models allowed Ron to gain financial prosperity in a very short amount of time, because he knew which stocks were going to be worth the most in the future.
I did not have any issues with this book. I found the writing style to be neat, detailed, and informative. The only thing I would have changed about this book would have been the amount of illustrations. There were parts of the book where Ron was describing a building and the details took up almost two pages. I think that having more illustrations (or even photos) to accompany the verbal descriptions would have made it easier for me to picture the settings in the story.
I am giving Timewise by Robert Leet a rating of 4 out of 4 stars, because I learned a lot about quantum physics from reading this book and the writing was professionally edited. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about quantum physics, and mathematical models. I would also recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading stories that talk about predicting the future. There were some elements of fantasy in this book, so I would not recommend it to anyone who does not enjoy reading science fiction stories. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future!
