This book is a bit scary because even tho it is set in the 22nd century, one can imagine that the scientific and societal developments that have taken place are not that far-fetched when thinking about things that are being worked on today. The writing is fast paced and "tongue in cheek" making this a fun read even though there some complex explanations of things like quantum physics.

Definitely going on my list of favorite hard sci-fi books, with a caveat. I get a feeling that a lot of people will find the 'draw-back' to teleportation to be, well, I imagine a lot of hyperbole involved such as 'mind-bending' and 'jaw-dropping'. It's a fairly old and common sci-fi trope which under a less talented author would have come across as boring and cliched. Thankfully Mr. Klein is talented and the result is a really enjoyable and surprisingly approachable hard sci-fi book (he has footnotes for a lot of the sciency stuff).
