A nice, if uneven read overall. The Highest Frontier tries to weave three separate themes about the future together: electoral politics, higher education, and ecological catastrophe. The three threads don't quite come together in the end. Slonczewski's proven ability to bring radically alternative biology to life takes a back seat to college fundraising and dialogues on political science that don't quite work. But book gets a full star for it's treatment of Dylan and Father Clare from me.
