This book was a really interesting idea and really brushed up against the idea of the Bootstrap paradox, which I wish was explored further by the book though I m not sure if that idea had been around when this book was written The writing style felt a little juvenile than I would have preferred but it helped make this a very easy, casual read Some of the plot felt a little unexplained and some of the details seemed to be missing Definitely an interesting read but could have done with better and sophisticated execution.
