Jim Crisafulli, Director of the Hawaii Office of Aerospace Development and Chairman of the Aerospace States Association Space Exploration Committee.

"Imbued throughout with compelling insights into the complex chemistry that fuels humanity's passion for exploration and discovery, The Obligation transports the reader on a creative and comprehensive voyage through the dialectics that define our nature as a space-faring species - providing a portal to the penchants and possibilities that will define both our evolving relationship to and future in the Cosmos. A most inspiring narrative that I would highly recommend to anyone who is curious about the raison d'ĂȘtre of humankind."
