Benford again invites us into a fantastic world that is actually our own as quantum effects are put to the test by simple men trying to deal with their own rocky academic careers and to save the world. Whoever said academia was boring!

Much of the "science" in this novel is already outdated - and it has not withstood the test of time well at all.
