This book is excellent, and everyone I've recommended it to agrees. Applies to one's personal life and career arguably as much as the great outdoors. #Audible1

The number-one best-selling author of The Future of the Mind traverses the frontiers of astrophysics, artificial intelligence, and technology to offer a stunning vision of man's future in space, from settling Mars to traveling to distant galaxies. Formerly the domain of fiction, moving human civilization to the stars is increasingly becoming a scientific possibility - and a necessity. Whether in the near future due to climate change and the depletion of finite resources or in the distant future due to catastrophic cosmological events, humans will one day need to leave Earth.

This book was a simplified summary of scientific theory and possible technological developments. It didn't explore new ideas like some of this author's other books. Good if you are new to the topic, but repetitive if you already have some knowledge in this area. #Audible1
