with Mr. Spock's tapered ears. . . . Live Long and Evolve's
thesis empowers."---Todd B. Gruel, PopMatters
"If you're like me, you've watched a lot of Star Trek. If you're even more like me, you'll read the new book Live Long and Evolve."---Steve Mirsky, Scientific American
"With a light, accessible style, [Noor] juxtaposes Star Trek scenarios with near-alien examples of life on Earth. . . . Noor wants his readers to understand that science, like fiction, is rife with intrigue."---Erin Zimmerman, Los Angeles Review of Books
