"A monumental literary feat that follows the author's critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller 'Cryptonomicon', it is history, adventure, science, truth, invention, sex, absurdity, piracy, madness, death, and alchemy. It sweeps across continents and decades with the power of a roaring tornado, upending kings, armies, religious beliefs, and all expectations."
