--ARTHUR C. CLARKE
"Bob Forward writes in the tradition of Hal Clement's Mission Gravity and carries it a giant step (how else?) forward."
"Dragon's Egg is superb. I couldn't have written it; it required too much real physics."
"This is one for the real science-fiction fan."
"Robert L. Forward tells a good story and asks a profound question. If we run into a race of creatures who live a hundred years while we live an hour, what can they say to us or we to them?"
--FREEMAN J. DYSON
Author of Disturbing the Universe
"Forward has impeccable scientific credentials, and . . . big, original, speculative ideas."
--The Washington Post
From the Publisher
Wow! What a truly great book! It is so brimming with new ideas and new perspectives that it literally expands your mind. It opens your eyes to new possibilities. Every few pages draw another exclaimation of "Wow!"
I wish I could say, "I liked the book so much, I bought the company." But next best thing did happen: I became General Manager of Del Rey. (Please note that your results from reading this book may vary.) Thank you, Veronica, for this fantastic recommendation which I whole-heartedly pass along to one and all.
