Writing home to your son/ daughter is always a challenge for a parent. Will they understand what exactly I am trying to convey? Will the person reading this to them understand? Will they ever get to read it as I might not be alive? The book starts out fairly well, Mr Linenger's take is that he's hardly had time to be with his son. The reason to write to him becomes clearer and more focused as the book wends its way to the end.
I laughed. I cried (towards the end) and yes, I yawned at a few parts but I came away with what a beautiful book of a father's pseudo-monologue, Mr Linenger wrote and congratulations to him and the science team and all concerned, especially his wife, whose love comes through in his letters. It's a new side to the '...boldly go where no man has gone before." stuff.

This book was purchased on a whim. It arrived in great condition and with the author's signature, which wasn't expected. Very reasonably priced.Published on November 4, 2013 by Pam
