A nice light read for pop-sci fans. No real depth, but great pub trivia fodder.

What is useful is that it's fully referenced. You can get into the real depth of Doctor Karl's work by going to his sources, which in many cases are peer-reviewed papers by the original researchers.

Enjoy it for what it is.
