 Recommended by: Charles Goebel (BS ‘57) “Lots of fun, built-in puzzles - see if you would survive stranded on Mars…”  Van Stoecker (BS ‘68) “Andy Weir said in an interview for National Geographic that he thought of The Martian as ‘competence porn.’ I loved this book. I interpret Weir’s remark, leaving aside the negative connotation, that some of us are very strongly attracted to these problem-solving struggles, notably present in Longitude and autobiographies of Selman Waksman and Michael Pupin.
