Charles Kerchner, November 14, 2014 (view all comments by Charles Kerchner)
If you like scientifically accurate (the non-fiction portions) sci-fi books with lots of character development, inside look to the scientific process, and lives of researcher, this is the book for you. It has a great plot - environmental disaster in the future is being trying to be adverted by a highly unlike small budget time messaging to the past project. Though it is long winded in areas, the pace of the book builds up into a wonderful and rewarding climax.
