really liked it

A majority of our family members are "techies," so this book has a broad appeal to us.

But it is the maze through which these "lab rats" have to manipulate their dreams that makes this great reading for all folk.

It isn't all that technical, which is good, because they would have lost me!'

Instead, their is a lot of dialogue to help explain how they got from point A to point Z. So much dialogue, in fact, in some places it reads like a novel. Did the crew carry tape recorders around with them? Or do they have photographic minds that also capture every conversation?

You will also love to see how caring adults can influence young students to live over their capabilities.
