Book Recommendation: "Martian Summer" by Andrew Kessler



I took this book with me to the Dominican Republic this summer, and I really enjoyed it.  Kessler has an unusual, very funny, self-deprecating writing style.  He is not a scientist nor an engineer, but he is given access to the inner sanctums of the Mars Phoenix mission, and spends an entire summer watching and documenting the work of the people running this mission.

  1. The title to "Martian Summer" makes me think of Ray Bradbury's short story "Rocket Summer" from The Martian Chronicles.
