Pros

The story is jam-packed with science. There were a few reviews here that complained about woke-ness. I think that humor made the story accessible to an audience that probably would have been repelled by all of the *, step-by-step science experiments.

Quality


The book itself is printed beautifully, the font is a great size, and the quality of the paper is very good as well.

    What we have, however, is a man who is relentlessly rational and positive and able to focus on the important aspects of the situation at all times, not like the rest of us.

    I enjoyed the book with one glaring exception.

    Why did the author seem it necessary to have a brilliant, highly educated, botanist/mechanical engineer using the gutter language of an un-educated moron.

    Most intellectuals do not talk with such crude language.
