    John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First, he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army. The good news is that humanity finally made it into interstellar space. The bad news is that planets fit to live on are scarce - and alien races willing to fight us for them are common. So, we fight, to defend Earth and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate. Far from Earth, the war has been going on for decades: brutal, bloody, unyielding.

    Michael says: "As good as Heinlein"
    "Best book in a while"
    Overall

    I usually don't write reviews. I don't want to take the time, so I just post my rating (diligently) and move on to the next book.
    However, I felt compelled to write to say this is the best book I have come across in some time. It made me laugh out loud in sections, while still maintaining that sense of what's next. Very much worth the time, and the money.

    Cheers.

    Winner of the Nebula Award for Best Novel, Red Mars is the first book in Kim Stanley Robinson's best-selling trilogy. Red Mars is praised by scientists for its detailed visions of future technology. It is also hailed by authors and critics for its vivid characters and dramatic conflicts.

    For centuries, the red planet has enticed the people of Earth. Now an international group of scientists has colonized Mars. Leaving Earth forever, these 100 people have traveled nine months to reach their new home. This is the remarkable story of the world they create - and the hidden power struggles of those who want to control it.

    Paul says: "If you like books with DETAIL not much Action"
    "Junior High on Mars"
    Overall

    If the author could get away from the junior high social aspect this wouldn't be too bad of a book. Unfortunately the author spends WAY TOO MUCH time on this aspect... and really ruins the rest of the book... too bad. I cannot recommend this title.

    From the acclaimed Vanity Fair and GQ journalist - an unprecedented, in-depth portrait of the man whose return to Apple precipitated one of the biggest turnarounds in business history.

    Thomas says: "Awesome background on Apple, NeXT, and Pixar."
    "The Second Coming of Steve Jobs (Unabridged)"
    Overall

    A solid look at Steve Jobs, as well as a fabulously detailed history of the technology boom and its architects during the 1970s, 80s and 90s.
