I'd read "The Outer Limits of Life" by Medina years ago and remember being pretty blown away by it. The writing in "Clock of Ages" is interesting at times, pedantic at others. The information is useful, but often presented in a straightforward scientific writing style (conclusions at the end of every chapter telling you what he just told you).
