My pick this week is a book I’ve just finished reading: The Martian by Andy Weir.
First off, a word of warning: this book isn’t for everyone. I’ve spent the last few hours sifting through bad reviews and op-eds trying to figure out why a significant portion of people don’t like the book. Much of the language is high-level and scientific, but at its root, it is a story of human resourcefulness and tenacity to survive. I would recommend this book if you can slog through the science talk.
