COMMUNITY REVIEWS

compelling story, weak science submitted by camelsamba on September 16, 2011, 8:09pm This isn't as strong on the science content as many of the books in the "Scientists in the Field" series. However, it has a really strong and compelling storyline that is sure to keep most readers engaged.
