Computer Network Time Synchronization: The Network Time Protocol
  by David L. Mills.  Book Description

  What started with the sundial has, thus far, been refined
   to a level of precision based on atomic resonance: Time.
  Our obsession with time is evident in this continued
   scaling down to nanosecond resolution and beyond.
  But this obsession is not without warrant.
   Precision and time synchronization are critical in many applications,
    such as air traffic control and stock trading,
    and pose complex and important challenges in modern information networks.
