Grad-school dropout Matt Fuller is toiling as a lowly research assistant at MIT when, while measuring subtle quantum forces that relate to time changes in gravity and electromagnetic force, his calibrator turns into a time machine. With a dead-end job and a girlfriend who has left him for another man, Matt has nothing to lose taking a time machine trip himself-or so he thinks.

Review of 'The Accidental Time Machine' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

"But simply putting yourself in the future, well, you could do that by just standing around. No profit in it unless you could come back."

This was quite a fun read, though entropy holds true - i.e. the further forward in time you go, the less time you seem to spend there. Still, for time travel fans, its an interesting one, especially with the depiction of the future mapped out so neatly.
