    A Marvelously Entertaining Book!

    John Brandenburg, PhD has gathered scientific information, mythology, astronomy, and history in a book about the planet Mars that is so completely entertaining that the reader almost forgets the premise of the author - that everything we thought we knew about Mars is wrong. 'The terrible truth: Mars was actually Earthlike for most of its geologic history. Mars held a massive and evolving biosphere. Mars was the wracked by a mysterious and astonishing nuclear catastrophe. We are, biologically and culturally, the Children of Mars. Life and Death on Mars: The New Mars Synthesis goes boldly where no human has gone before.' On many many pages of this book that begins with ancient Egyptian and other culture's perception of the red planet, named for Mars the God of War, and progresses in a well-written way to our current discoveries that were initiated by the investigation of a meteorite from Mars that fell into Egypt in 1928. But what makes Brandenburg's book such a fine read is the manner in which he succinctly traces the history of man from ancient days through the Cold War and the concurrent exploration of space to the photographs of the planet Mars taken by our spacecraft most recently. Not only does he pause long enough at each point in history to offer insights but he also accompanies these stopovers with photographs and images that enhance the information he is sharing. In the middle of the book are beautiful color photographs of the surface of mars and its surroundings along with heat maps and graphs that explain Brandenburg's theses. But the drama of Brandenburg's book is his discussion of the nuclear catastrophe that turned the once 'earthlike' planet into a wasteland - going so far as to discuss why we earthlings are biologically and culturally the children of Mars! All of this is so well written that it reads like a novel - and makes the reader wonder if the book is based on the famous Orson Welles 1938 radio show 'The War of the Worlds' that terrified the nation. But the fanciful ideas in this book are followed by scientific data that describe findings on Mars that support Brandenburg's ideas. In the end the author emphasizes that if we are indeed the children of Mars then we should learn lessons from the past and live life more attuned to the possibilities of nuclear annihilation and take preventive measures. In short, this is a book for all readers - science fiction, history, fantasy, and humanist centered. And is is a marvelously entertaining little book! Grady Harp
