Help me find a book about railways!

My dad heard a discussion on NPR--he says within the last week--about a new book describing how the railways created coordinated universal time (UTC). He wants to read this book and, embarrassing as it is to admit, I haven't been able to find it. I've found plenty of books on the subject but none that have been published this year.
So, did anyone else hear the NPR review, or know which book I'm talking about? Thanks!
