Críticas:

In an area more given to fabulation than fact, [Paul Davies'] level-headedness is positively refreshing. If you ever start worrying about why no one is talking to us, this is the book to calm you down (David Papineau Observer)

Davies is the most engaging of writers (Clive Cookson FT)

An immensely readable investigation of the SETI enterprise (Michael Hanlon New Scientist)

A magnificent cosmic tour d'horizon of what we know, and what we might yet encounter out there, in the apparent emptiness of deep space (Christoper Hart Sunday Times)

Reseña del editor:

Paul Davies' The Eerie Silence: Searching For Ourselves in the Universe is an engaging and lucid guide to the 'Fermi Paradox' - why isn't the universe teeming with alien life?

If aliens ever contact us, it will be the single most significant event in human history. And Paul Davies will be responsible for saying something back.

For fifty years the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence has been scanning the skies. Now Davies, head of SETI's Post-Detection Task Group, with 'a rare talent for making physics mind-bogglingly vivid and exciting' (Times Higher Education), explores what the mysterious silence it has encountered could mean.

Here he looks at exciting new ways to make contact with extra-terrestrial life. He considers what form advanced alien intelligence is likely to take if it exists. And more importantly, what exactly it would mean if it didn't ­- how extraordinary it would be if we were alone, to be human and here in this staggering, eerie silence...

'A magnificent cosmic tour of what might be out there in space'
  Sunday Times

'Conveys excellently the fascination of the quest'

'An authoritatively written, immensely clear, lay person's guide to the many things we don't know about the rest of the universe'
  Guardian
