Dave Barrys Greatest Hits - Paperback

Headline Book Publishing, UK, 2000. Softcover. Very Good Condition. Available Now. Book Description: Andrew Berry's vision of the future - interstellar journeys that will carry people from our solar system to explore and colonise other planets. He writes with lucidity and humour but his ideas are firmly rooted in scientific fact. : Amazon Review: Even if you don't believe it is ever going to happen, the idea of humanity's colonisation of far planets and persistence until the latter cold days of the universe has a certain attractive mad arrogance to it. Adrian Berry is a strong believer in a lot of things--dogmatism is perhaps an odd fault in one so determined to remind us of the martyrdoms of Galileo and Giordano Bruno--and the vast enterprise of galaxy-wide travel is one of the things he believes in. He takes us through the problems of travel--the speed of light has to be lived with or got around--and colonisation. Life on the frontier is tough and expresses considerable optimism about all of it; there are better explanations of topics such as relativity and cryogenic suspension--so-called "cold sleep"--but he is never less than fluent and clear. What is perhaps less convincing are his extended diatribes against government--he believes, thus far against the evidence, that private enterprise will take us to the planets and beyond--and his belief that computer games will keep people happy as they travel through infinite silent space. And when the universe ends, at least we will have tried. --Roz Kaveney : Review: This is Adrian Berry at his best, partly because he writes so well and partly because he has a fascinating theme...I hope that his book will be republished in 2099, since by then we ought to have gained a much better idea of what lies ahead, and be able to gauge the extent to which his forecasts have been accurate. In any case, The Giant Leap is a great read, and I am confident that you will enjoy it immensely - I certainly did. (Patrick Moore, Literary Review): 'What fun this book is, and how cheerful, in a world where few look ahead to anything more exciting than the Third Way.'

The rapacious observer of Tupperware ladies and leisure concept salesmen sounds off on: Football--Football is more than just a game. It is a potential opportunity to see a live person lying on the ground with a bone sticking out of his leg, while the fans, to show their appreciation, perform the wave. Sailing--Theres nothing quite like getting out on the open sea, where you can forget about the hassles and worries of life on land, and concentrate on the hassles and worries of life on the sea, such as death by squid. Gambling--Off-Track Betting parlors are the kinds of places where you never see signs that say, Thank You for Not Smoking. The best you can hope for is, Thank You for Not Spitting Pieces of Your Cigar on My Neck. The good news: hes funny as ever. The bad news: the book is only 304 pages. --Los Angeles Daily News This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN., Ballantine Books
