I'm a freelance science and technology editor and writer, covering everything from cloud computing to planetary science.

I also have a big interest in archaeology, but now my studies are moving toward how past climate change has influenced human development.

I live in the Highlands of Scotland where I run the world's largest online science fiction and fantasy community at sffchronicles.com.

Now posting harsher ratings

From now on I'm going to be a little more harsh with my ratings. I figure the following is a decent scale:

5: Excellent! Everyone must read! I probably will again at some point.
4: Very good. I will recommend this to people who like this sort of book.
3: Average. Nothing to really shout about or recommend.
2: Poor. I managed to finish this book, but there were too many flaws for me to really enjoy it. Read more of this blog post »

I came to this book with high expectations, only to find myself disappointed.

Firstly, it's a short book with only ten chapters. Secondly, the book is an uneven mix of tabloid tirades and archaeological insight - frankly, much of this book is nothing
