The world hasn’t met with destruction on any of the long list of predicted doomsday dates, but the possibility may have got you thinking: has science created more problems than it has solved? What is the point of science at all? Geoffrey Gorham considers these questions and explores the social and ethical implications of science by linking them to issues facing scientists today: human extinction, extraterrestrial intelligence, space colonisation, and more.

The book is very well written and the reading was above average, as well.
The multiple perspectives and issues that are covered within.
Robert does a nice job in connecting the listener with the content.
Many philosophical musings in regard to science, its history, findings, and methods.
Sometimes throughout the reading my brain felt like the reader was rushing, however, overall, the reader did a good job and certainly sounds believably competent. His reading speed thus doesn't detract from the information presented.
