MOSTLY FICTION Review

This is a great site. Their "you might also enjoy" algorithm kicked up books about space I had not previously been aware of and am now totally going to read.

It's a good review! But as a physics major and a pedant, I feel compelled to point out that the second block quote misrepresents your knowledge of physics; someone must have thought "thirty-two feet per second per second" was a misprint.

This, uh... this is a ridiculous comment to be making. In my own defense, I've been grading intro-physics labs all evening and I'm in a brainstate to notice that kind of thing.

It was almost like that in the printed book! The copyeditor thought "thirty-two feet per second per second" was a misprint. When I put it back in, she was like, "Okaaay, if that's the way you want it..." as if it were a matter of taste.
