After his memoir about teaching English in China, 'China and the High Roads Beyond', Mathew worked on 'Our Cosmic Story' (now also published with associated short stories here on Goodreads).

Creating Our Cosmic Story was an amazing journey that started by speaking with experts in a multitude of fields. The new book describes the formation of our solar system, biological evolution on Earth, historical civilizations and the eventual exploration of space, to the chance of life and civilizations to occur elsewhere in the cosmos.
