It feels really strange to be giving this book 5 stars. After all, tie-in products usually come across as "shovelware" - a product with the logo just meant to separate the fan from his money.

That's exactly what I was expecting when I opened up the pages of this one.

What I got instead is Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything with Battlestar references. The authors explore anthropology, chemistry, medicine, physics, astronomy, military theory first, and tie it into Battlestar second. It is quite refreshing.

This is a good, quick read for science and Battlestar fans, and I'd recommend it for pretty much anyone.

Patrick Justo Thank you! Technically, this didn't start as a tie-in book. Not at all. It became one through corporate/legal matters beyond my control.
