To get in the spirit for Read Across Lawrence's selection, The Martian by Andy Weir, I picked up this book based on the title alone. What I thought would be a swift read through its' 77 pages was easily refuted. The vast information housed was gripping and all of my questions raised throughout were answered. This book will shine a new light on what it means for humans to explore Mars, the strides that have already been made, and the effort it will take to make it a reality. I encourage everyone to read this book!
