well, in that case Vitali Klitschko makes great presidential candidate for Ukraine
This book is both a celebration of man's ingenuity and our desire to survive no matter what the odds. And pure geekery.
I don't know how scientifically accurate the book is, but to a layman like myself, the problems encountered seem believable, and the solutions very clever.
Mark Watney (the protagonist) is the kind of hero i enjoy the most - not a superman with unrealistic capabilities, but a very approachable science geek, innovative, funny, brave, resourceful and very, very human.
As a middle-age designer with back problems, my chances for astronaut career are pretty slim, but this book should be a required reading for middle-school children to inspire next generation of scientists, dreamers and space exploring geeks.

The old world is buried. A new one has been forged atop the shifting dunes. Here in this land of howling wind and infernal sand, four siblings find themselves scattered and lost. Their father was a sand diver, one of the elite few who could travel deep beneath the desert floor and bring up the relics and scraps that keep their people alive
The concept is fresh, the action exhilarating, and the world building effortless. But the main beauty of this novel is in writing. I found myself sucked right into the quicksand (pun intended) of the story, losing quite a bit of sleep due to Hugh's masterful storytelling.
Yes, it's got some minor plot holes, the world was not defined as well as in Wool, and I felt the ending was rushed, but hopefully there will be a sequel that will justify that.
I recommend it
