I felt this was a bit basic overall, both in it's ideas and their presentation. There were very few references (typically one or two per chapter), and the font was large. Say no more.

Some great guess work some good hard science and some interesting ideas. Some of the fictional stories towards the end to help make his point don't always work. But sometimes they do.
