WTF! Who gave this author a PHD who can't even write!? His Chic Alien girlfriend?

He made a smoothie book using many names of sci-fi books and movies without developing his own ideas.
There is no topic sentence and you don't know what the hell you reading or expecting.
The book is filled with many one paragraph quotes which some are irrelevant.

Don't waste your time and dime!
