"One man's life is at stake. A stranger takes the risk to save him. It is hard to imagine someone stranger. A group of people independently learn how to communicate with certain species of animals. These people also discover each other and bond. Their developing friendships also develop activities and procedures that will benefit all species. They start an interesting journey to enlightenment. This group's activities uncover ecological and psychological problems that endanger the whole world. Topics such as pollution, climate change, bigotry, and greed are confronted. People are urged to work together and they realize that personal differences benefit all of life. Their lives aren't the only ones in danger, they care for the world."--Amazon.

"This guy talks about space. And he is pretty spacey, from his inert mind to where he thinks he's set no limits. Unfortunately you've got to work with this guy. And worse yet, you go bowling with him. He claims to have traveled faster than the sense of light. To you it seems senseless. Ahh, but is it really any worse than a normal day at work? And you just want to retire."--Amazon.
