Wow, the publisher's blurb for this book makes it sound like a chemistry equation:

"Four talented teenagers" + (trauma + "self-absorbed adults") --> "invisible helicopter" --> valuable lesson

It is so not that. Or, if it is, it tells this story i

The drama! The danger! The imagery! "The night has a thousand eyes, and two of them are mine. I swoop through the bleak blackness like a wolf in the air." You couple that with adorable roundy-cutie rough-hewn art and that is a SLAM DUNK.

Edward R. Tufte
“PowerPoint is like being trapped in the style of early Egyptian flatland cartoons rather than using the more effective tools of Renaissance visual representation.”
Edward R. Tufte, Beautiful Evidence

Neil Gaiman
“When I was a child, adults would tell me not to make things up, warning me of what would happen if I did. As far as I can tell so far, it seems to involve lots of foreign travel and not having to get up too early in the morning.”
Neil Gaiman, Smoke and Mirrors

Dr. Seuss
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
Dr. Seuss

Stephen Fry
“If I had a large amount of money I should certainly found a hospital for those whose grip upon the world is so tenuous that they can be severely offended by words and phrases and yet remain all unoffended by the injustice, violence and oppression that howls daily about our ears.”
Stephen Fry, Paperweight

Douglas Adams
“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time
