Format: Paperback
I was set to read a non-fiction book on space/mars and by lucky chance I picked this one from the list. It is nothing like the text book I had imagined as non-fictional.
It is based a few hundred years in the future, when Mars has been newly populated. The first part is a humorous guide for survival and success on mars for someone emigrating from earth. It covers getting there, choosing a space suit, choosing transport, setting up habitations and how to create and generate all the necessities for life from the Martian environment, both for everyday living and in emergency. One failing of this book is that it does not clarify on which technologies exist and which are still theory, although I am sure it is all sound chemistry, as its written by the president of the Mars Society. All the way through it includes small facts, problems and how they have been overcome etc about a manned mission to mars, and interspersed with humorous writing.
The second part of the book focuses on industries that could run on and from mars once it is inhabited, as well as a section on terraforming the planet.
Throughout it is an entertaining read and I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in mars.
