There are chapters, essays, and appendices by a number of talented writers. Perhaps the most fascinating contributions are by Jonathan Vos Post and David Brin, former classmates at Caltech, who are now both well-known scientists and authors. Is it just a coincidence that Brin wrote "The Postman?" These two scientist/science fiction authors draw on a range of literature in SETI (the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), linguistics, anthropology, and the many works of fiction on the subject. A handsome acid-free paper book that just might change history if the person who first meets an extraterrestrial has read the contents and taken them seriously.
