Read from January 15 to 23, 2012 — I own a copy

I read this book 25 years ago, and back then it made a stunning impression on me. As an experiment, I decided to read it again to see how my thoughts and tastes had evolved. Sadly, "Macroscope" has not stood the test of time. A pretentious jumbled mess of astrology, eugenics and Civil War history, this book aspires to be an epic but falls a long way short. Horrendously dated (complete with undercurrents of racism and utterly overt sexism), bloated and rambling. A big disappointment.
