Great amounts of great ideas, especially about (1) knowing and not knowing and (2) war and it's possible futures.

However, while loving Solaris, The Fiasco, The Futurologocal Congress, Return from the Starts (and hating Notes found in a bathtub) this book just passed me by. Not much plot, really at all, difficult to care about the characters, vague and rambling. And the ideas aren't all that> great.

Not a great, and I originally gave only two stars.
