        This fascinating novel poses a world in which Matthew Gallow was cast out of heaven and landed on earth essentially for the crime of stubbornness. He isn’t evil (though satanic forces do take a shot at recruiting him), but he’s so stubborn that even God got sick of his obstinancy. The Stubborn Scientist Who Unraveled A Mystery of the Night to Mars with a third of the Earth’s surface still unexplored.” The REM state is so important that some scientists have.

        In his book, ON TRAILS, Robert Moor delves into the questions: what are trails and how do they form?

If you think of the publication of this book as a form of economic growth/gdp enhancement, I want to boost its positive global effects.
