See a Problem?

Alas, this isn't that book. Most of the rest is gracelessly written boilerplate, the history of thought about ET and a review of planetary science that's been done scores of times, and almost always better. Beyond being a bull in the china shop of prose, Lamb has produced a work that reads like it was dictated into transcription software and handed to the publisher.

There are word transpositions, endless duplication, inconsistencies of form, and outright factual errors. In short, what's good about this book can be gotten elsewhere, and what's bad, beyond being terribly distracting, renders this of near-zero, if not negative, utility.

He also assesses competing theories on the origin of life on earth, discoveries of former solar planets, proposals for space colonies and the consequent technical and ethical issues.

Most importantly he considers the benefits and drawbacks of communication with new life forms - how we should communicate and whether we actually can. The scientific status of SETI.
