Review excerpts (from Goodreads and around the web).

"I have never read a story quite like this. Often authors don't dive intotouchy subjects like this one, but Michael Reed did an excellent job!"

"A quick read that makes you laugh as much as it makes you think."

"What an odd, short, minimalist thought piece. I enjoyed it."

"This book is very well written and should be read by all so that everyonecan actually see how science and society interact with one another- Irecommend this book"

"I recommend this book to everyone. Notbecause I think everyone will like it but because I think it is animportant window into how science, news and society all react with eachother"

"His story can be darkly comedic and heartbreaking atthe same time, especially since the author gives John a strong narrative voice that makes me feel like I can relate to his every frustration and resentment."

"All in all, it carries the message not to get so hung up on yourself, avoid getting stuck in a rut and that, now andthen, you should take the time to reset your sexual compass."
