"Can humans overcome the threat of nuclear weapons proliferation and other global threats to our survival? Narrated from an 'alien' viewpoint, this book takes a hard look at the scientific and historical facts through a story that is both entertaining and hopeful. You too will 'try to see the whole as one'!" - Pat Takahashi, author of Simple Solutions for Planet Earth and Simple Solutions for Humanity.
