As a professor in astrophysics I obviously find the field of science and all it holds to be very interesting; however I found this particular book to be amateur in content.

    Hello, again. My name is Louis Harper Bentley. Well, about that previous comment, I was right. This person is dumb. One person agreed with me. That person must be destroyed.
