“Are we ready to talk to an alien? As with the language of angels in the medieval times, this exquisite reflection boosts our fantasy and advances our understanding of the nature of possible languages from a novel and exciting perspective.”
Andrea Moro, professor of linguistics, Institute for Advanced Study

“How should we talk to aliens? Using music, mathematics, or something else? Oberhaus writes with lucid and enticing prose about the many schemes proposed to communicate with our cosmic confreres. Talking to aliens might seem fanciful today, but could become relevant next week, next months, or next year.”
Seth Shostak, senior astronomer, SETI Institute

“Oberhaus delivers an engaging read, striking a good balance between ‘hard’ and ‘popular’ science. “
