Reviewer's comment:

A fantastic story of humanity that took me by surprise. I really enjoyed a letter to Layla, I found it compelling and engaging and it provided some amazing insight into human history and future. The title threw me a bit and I wasn’t sure what I was going to be reading about. It definitely delivered.

Pros

Written in a journalists story telling tone.

Provides real scientific insight into human history

A lot of science written by a non-scientist which in a way breaks down the language barrier.

Cons

Only provides surface level info about most topics.

More detail on the past than the future.
