I wished there was a similar publication regarding Crichton’s more recent works such as Next or Timeline, but this is the only one I could find so far. For all of Crichton’s many fans, I highly recommend this book. It provides valuable insight into Crichton himself and explains some of the literary tools he used to make his books so captivating. It also puts Crichton’s work in context with other notable science fiction writers such as .

  • Ok, far as I could tell, this book is all about two things. Envy of the author, and trying to make light of all his values. Clancy obviously values the armed servants of his country high and I fail to see why this is cause for diverse derisive comments about him as a person.
    Mind you, I haven't read all of this, I could't stand to. I think the Clancy books stand on their own, without anyone having to do their best clobbering him for his great writing.
    Read a Clancy book and form your own opinion, don't buy this highly colored collection of defamatory sentences.
