I really liked the Time Wars series by Simon Hawke (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TimeWars). A friend of mine borrowed some a few years ago and then searched high and low to get his own set.
This is canon. :D
Asimov's The End of Eternity is one of the few books that I read that really focused around time travel as a major plot element/hook. It's an interesting take on what time travel could result in, though I imagine it's far from the best of that type of book. It's certainly not the best of Asimov (yknow, in my opinion).

"Good" books or movies about time travel are rare...
But you should try To Say Nothing Of The Dog by Connie Willis.
I'ma assume, like the above, you mean fiction books, and not non-fiction....
Not wholly about time travel, per se, but it is a plot device, and a very good read anyway :
Greg Bear's The Way series.
Eon
Eternity;
Legacy;
The Way of All Ghosts.
Edit : Do yourself a favour, and stay well away from anything by Michael Crichton.
Edit 2 : Just been through my library and a couple of titles spring out :
Millennium by John Varley.
Also made into a film that wasn't half-bad.
By His Bootstraps by Robert Heinlein.

There is an amazing book by a German writer (Wolfgang Jeschke) called The Last Day of Creation.
It's about the war for the oil which takes place in the prehistoric ages. A must read book!

Quoted for truth about his book of scientists going back to medieval era. Probably one of the worst, if not THE worst, book by Crichton.
SF book version of GOG
slaughterhouse five by Kurt Vonnegut
The Time Machine by H.G. Wells.
'nuff said.

Oh dear, I had blocked out that book. Personally, I'm a fan of...most? the large majority of?...a lot of his books, but damn Timeline was a stinker. It probably is his worst (though I haven't read that book of his they published posthumously yet...).

Well given that the concept of time itself is a fiction...

While I agree with the nomination, please don't call /thread on your own posts. It just makes the rest of us facepalm hard enough to damage our delicate little noses.
