The first few chapters of this book provide some basic science. Mostly it is stuff that one would learn in a first year community college class. This book deals primarily with the politics of 2003. It is woefully out of date with current policies, politics, funding, and discoveries.
The book is well written and well read. If you want to know the basics behind a SETI project I do suggest you read this book.

This is a story that needs to penetrate the world's psyche! As a society, we need to remain curious enough to expend resources on questions like this.....Good Job, Ben!!!!

while the book was interesting, a lot of the subject material and the missions discussed are in the books 'future'. As the book was published in 2003, some of the future missions it mentions (New Horizons mission to Pluto, the Rosette mission etc) have already concluded, and this gives the book a 'dated feel'.. this is unfortunate, as otherwise the content is very interesting.
