Recommends it for: science dorks
Shelves: fantasy
explanation of the math, theory, etc. that tends towards interstellar travel via black holes a possibility.

SO ends up being far fetched, but not so much that you'd be all 'dizzamn that crazy shit ain't gonna happen' and reminds all of why we hate sci-fi dorks... cuz they have degrees in the shit and can back up all their Star Trek jerk fests.

HOWEVER, if space and such is of interest give it a go. Fun, incredibly short read. TOTAL what-if. Not the place to find facts, figures, etc. so much.
