Brante, January 6, 2007 (view all comments by Brante)
This book is well worth the Hugo and Nebula Awards it received. Once again Mr. Clarke brings intrigue and new ideas to the table as his characters attempt to pull off the greatest engineering project of all time: an elevator into space. The concepts inroduced in this book will excite engineers everywhere and inspire those with any mechanical interests. Another beautiful piece from Clarke.
