I really enjoyed this book despite some shortcomings...a lot of the time it reads like a text book...or a series of meeting minutes but overall it's a good read and it definitely feels more realistic because of it. Alien messages turn up - yes there are going to be a lot of meetings and conferences etc. I don't think the book particularly suffers from this and there are a couple of extremely well put together arguments regarding religion vs science.
I did however find some of the things that were thrown in a bit odd...I must have missed the whole space station bit.
