Abstract:

With over fifty unpredictable, scathing, hilarious, and more-than-occasionally moving essays about science, politics, family, pop culture, religion and more, Peter Watts ' Hugo Award-winning author, former marine biologist, and 'angry sentient tumor' (via Annalee Newitz, author of Autonomous) ' shows why he is the savage dystopian optimist whom you can't look away from ' even when you probably should. [STARRED REVIEW] 'Irreverent, self-depreciating, profane, and funny, showcasing a Hunter S. Thompson'esque studied rage and dissatisfaction with the status quo combined with the readability and humor of John Scalzi.' 'Booklist Which of the following is true' Peter Watts is banned from the U.S. Watts almost died from flesh-eating bacteria. A schizophrenic man living in Watts's backyard almost set the house on fire. Watts was raised by Baptists who really sucked at giving presents. Peter Watts said to read this book. Or else. With Watts's infamous penchant for blunt, honest, and deep reflection, these retrospective essays provide a view inside his head and even into his heart.
