Is joke?

I've occasionally chatted with Dr. Taylor online. He is a physicist who has worked for the government, and the book is not a joke.

Not a joke, John. Travis Taylor is one of my friends, he writes science fiction where more of the emphasis is on hard science, and follows some of the more advanced theories in relativity while doing so. The book is written along the lines of a standard threat assessment, along with some suggestions towards potential contingency plans. How likely is there to be another civilization out there? How likely are they to notice us? If they did, would they be likely to make contact, and if so, what would be their likely motives? If they were hostile, what, if anything, could we do about it? No Apple laptops on a captured alien spaceship being used to hack the defense codes...

As I recall, Dr Taylor has also collaborated with John Ringo on a couple of books. Von Neumann's War

Not a joke, Doc Travis is for real, is a genuine double-domed big brain and this book might be worth your investment.
