Summary
"How do you get to the Red Planet? Not via a benighted government program trapped in red tape. Art Thrasher knows this. He is a man with a driving vision: send humans to Mars. Thrasher has a plan. Form a 'club' of billionaires to chip in one billion a year until the dream is accomplished. A billionaire himself and the president of a successful company, it will take all his wiles and master manipulator of business and capital to overcome setbacks and sabotage--and get a rocket full of scientists, engineers, visionaries and dreamers on their way to the Red Planet"--

Summary
Bova, a six-time Hugo Award winner and past president of the National Space Society, returns to his most popular and bestselling subject: the quest for Mars! How do you get to the Red Planet? Not via a benighted government program trapped in red tape and bound by budget constrictions, that's for sure. No, what it will take is a helping of adventure, science, corporate power plays, a generous dollop of seduction--both in and out of the boardroom--and money, money, money!
