My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was an interesting read. The author’s rather wry sense of humor also added to the reading experience. As a “tourist” in some of the most polluted, destroyed, and/or radiated places on the planet, Blackwell still manages to see a bit of good in the humanity still inhabiting or working in these places.
This book is a bit of science, a bit of humor, and a good dollop of philosophy on life, human behavior, love, beauty, and feces. Read it. You’ll probably get a kick out of it. I’d actually like to meet this fellow Blackwell and sit down for a dinner and a few drinks with him. I’m pretty sure the conversation would be quite interesting.
