The book is divided into eight chapters beginning with "Aliens, SETI and UFOs" through "Futurists" and ending with "Metaphysical Science." Tomes by some of the august scientists of our time including Steven Weinberg, Richard Feynman, Stephen Hawking, Carl Sagan, Brian Greene, Sir Martin Rees along with some of our best science journalists including Ben Bova, Marcus Chown, Joel Achenbach, and K.C. Cole are examined with a critical eye. Some of the eye-popping ideas of best-selling futurists such as Ray Kurzweil, Francis Fukuyama, Bruce Sterling and others are explored and critiqued. Littrell introduces the reviews and writes an afterword for each chapter. There is an index of titles and another index of authors reviewed.
Littrell writes in a lively, often satirical style that stings his targets and delights his readers, but most significantly, his reviews inform. Don't miss this book!

About the Author
Additionally, I've written over fifteen hundred reviews (over a million words in all!) for various Web sites, most notably Amazon and the Internet Movie Database. Some of my reviews are among the best appearing anywhere (or so I have been told). Over the years I've also written about a dozen book-length manuscripts. My project now is to present perhaps half of these manuscripts before the public in book form. I am also putting together book-length collections of my reviews.
I was graduated from UCLA in 1969 with a major in Political Science and minor in English Literature.
