I’ve been reading some recent books that I’ve enjoyed or anticipate enjoying. I recently finished Avi Loeb’s Extraterrestrial.

Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth by [Avi Loeb]

I know reviews have been mixed, but I enjoyed this book. Perhaps it is because of the science he goes into. Perhaps the provocative questions he asks in a socratic sort of way. Perhaps it is because of the uniqueness of his story. While Avi Loeb obviously can’t offer any sort of definitive answers he certainly is persuasive about what the true shape and most likely origin of the artifact are. I found it an enjoyable read and for those who want to jump into more details there are plenty of footnotes and references.
