"An exhilarating ride. The arguments advanced for the prevalence of life in the solar system are well developed and highly stimulating. I'm glad that I read it."
The Times Higher Educational Supplement
"Well-written and provocative."
New Scientist
"Compelling arguments and sound reasoning make a convincing case that primitive life forms exist on Mars and at various other places in our solar system." "A highly recommended case that brings the new possibility to readers of life at various levels. Conditions which are probably too hostile to permit life to exist - certainly life as we know it."
