Andy Weir

Andy Weir has a background in computer science. He began writing the book in 2009, researching the book to be as realistic as possible based on existing technology.[5]Weir studied orbital mechanics, astronomy, and the history of manned spaceflight.[7]
Having been rebuffed by literary agents, Weir put the book online for free at his website.[5] At the request of fans he made a Amazon Kindle version available at 99 cents (the minimum he could set the price).[

That's pretty neat. I had never heard of Andy Weir. One of my patients who is an avid reader and Sci Fi fan recommended the book to me.

Just finished "The Martian" and it was great, I sat in my carport for the last 17 minutes and that is a great book. Thanks for the recommendation!
