I enjoyed it, in a geeky science-for-the-masses way. If you like Brian Greene string theory books, you'll like this. I think it would be great for HS kids. It's not like his other books.
Chip, I liked "Flyboys" too. I read where some thought his whole history of the cultures of the two opposing countries that led to the racial attitudes was too stereotypical, but I think it was thought-provoking. Read Halberstam's book some years back and thought it was good. When was that originally published? It's been out a while I think.
