The phenomenal success of SciFi Channel's Battlestar Galactica, Dune and Children of Dune have demonstrated that today's audience is sophisticated. We want profound and realistic life experiences, original adventures (the new BSG has very little to do with the old), new story lines and new question to explore. Discussions about intense social issues, or even God, are no lo...more

I read the first Safety Factor, and I have to say that it’s difficult to not compare the two, writing-wise. The language in this book is cleaner; the characters dialogue is less forced. The story—the heart—just as strong as the first one; and here’s where I come around to what I enjoyed, immensely, about this book:

The plot itself and the dynamics of it are well-executed. There is a protagonist whose power stems from his intelligence, and a love story that drives the plot forward with the partic...more
'The Safety Factor Part 2 - The Cost of War' is the second installment in this series of books. In this book, we skip 365 years into the future and meet Rene, an exceptionally intelligent scientist.

He goes to all the trouble to invent this, in order to be with the woman he has fallen in love with ( a woman who died 65 years earlier). I thought this was a very interesting concept.

The Safety factor the use of Power was a excellent book from the Jerry Travis and Josephine Mayes. The Second Book in this series was The safety Factor The cost of war was way above than my expectation. The Fiction Portrayal of the story was so ideal in terms of its reality which lacks in other fictional books. Jerry was a excellent Teacher, A great Motivator and a Techno Savvy person with immense understanding of management fundamentals. He as a Person is very kind, has a sense of personal H...more

This book continues the story started in The Safety Factor The Use of Power. The 'ladies from the past' safely arrive in the future and are settled into society. They are joined by scientist Rene and his spouse Jean. She is also from the past, rescued from murderers by Rene. As before, they have many philosophical discussions, mainly about the evolution of human society, governments and time travel.

That last topic was the most interesting for me. I have always had some gut-feeling objections to...more
