Review by: Leila Zucker on Nov. 18, 2013 :
If you mind-melded Neil deGrasse Tyson with Terry Pratchett, you'd get the scientific wisdom combined with the hilarious footnotes of this fantastic book by Andrew Rader. I rarely read non-fiction, but I'm glad I made an exception. The title pretty much explains what this book is about,"Leaving Earth: Why One-Way to Mars Makes Sense". If you are a space enthusiast or just enjoy a fun, quick, intelligent read, this book is for you.
