The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence by David Lamb
Edward Ingram gazes heavenwards and tells us about the Search for Little Green Men.
Most books on extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI) are awful. David Lamb’s book, The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, is an exception. I enjoyed it immensely.
Lamb starts by discussing the assumption that, should we find an ETI civilization (or they us) communication between them and us, and vice versa, would be easy. This assumption is prevalent within the SETI (Search for ETI) community and, as Lamb argues, is problematical.
