"There is little doubt that Gardner's ideas will change yours." --Seth Shostak
Top Customer Reviews
With speculative forays into artificial life, computer consciousness, the Fermi Paradox, religion, and other more sci-fi-like frontiers of discussion, Gardner also manages to summarise much of the cutting edge of thinking about these current and fast-evolving fields, and these sections of the book will probably date the fastest.
The book could have benefitted from a little more editing and time spent on layout and design (although it is less home-spun than BIOCOSM, which had endless inserts and boxes that interupted the read), but he is clearly devoted to explaining himself as clearly as possible, and these are small quibbles.
This book deserves to be widely read and discussed.
