Review:

"At last! Neil McAleer's long anticipated . . . and extended biography of Arthur Clarke has arrived. Was it worth the wait? The answer is an emphatic Yes!" --Mark Stewart, British Interplanetary Society, Odyssey Newsletter, December 2011

"What Arthur Clarke and I shared—besides most of the 20th century—is the adventurous spirit and enthusiasm of the early manned space program, and this biography tells Arthur's place in that story." --Walter Cronkite, From the Foreword

"Visionary offers an in-depth look at a man whose writing entertained and engaged generations of people about the promise of space." --Jeff Foust, "Review: Visionary," The Space Review, October 15, 2012

"A Celebration of Arthur C. Clarke . . . Clarke-o-philes will simply love this book, while older readers will wallow in the nostalgia it evokes for his early period." --Mark Williamson, Engineering and Technology Magazine, June 2012

"Visionary by Neil McAleer, is more than a good biography: it is important book—a much needed addition to the existing canon of literary biographies. . . ." --Chris Matarazzo, Review in When Falls the Coliseum, May 14, 2012
