As always, John McPhee writes an entertaining book about something you never thought to think about but will find fascinating in his words. The author as narrator also adds a great deal to make this book personal. I hope he keeps writing forever!
This is one of the best books I have read in the last few years (and I read more than 100 books per year). The different narrators for each section were excellent and helped distinguish each story. I did find myself reviewing the hard copy of the book as well because the material is so rich, I didn't want to miss anything. Although I normally don't read science fiction, the sections that were science fiction were intriguing because of the way they tied into the remainder of the book. Don't miss it!
