This is on my for later list because Jo Walton at tor.com says "... it’s fascinating and weird and absolutely riveting and filled me with ideas for fiction. Even if the subject wasn’t inherently interesting, which it is, this is the best kind of nonfiction book, full of erudition but written so it can be understood without prior knowledge but without talking down. It’s also written with humour and delight."
