Book reviewing for physicists

“Reading The Heaven Virus makes our brains glow and our spirits soar. The book is sexy, funny, mysterious, and hyper-real. My friends ask me questions while reading the book: ‘Can you really have sex in a computer chip? Can our brains be uploaded to computers where we can dream in a chip?’ I smile. The book coaxes my friends to rush to their nearest computer terminal, warm themselves from the effluent of their computers’ fans, and make love among the cables and noises from the hard drives.”

There’s really not much I can say that a visit to the book’s home page won’t say better:

Back up your sanity then spend some time browsing around Cliff’s site: http://sprott.physics.wisc.edu/pickover/pc/realitycarnival.html
