Told from the perspective of an old hat Mars veteran, this satirical how-to book gives advice on everything from how to get a job that wont kill you to how to choose a habitat, how to make big money, how to make a big discovery and even how to pick up Mars women (or men). The narrative voice in the book is a bit of a scamp, says Zubrin. Hes willing to bend the rules, and hes very much a person of the frontier.
Zubrin will discuss and sign his unique vision of the future starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Boulder Book Store, 1107 Pearl Street; admission is free. For more information, call 303-447-2074 or go to boulderbookstore.booksense.com.
