Andromeda Strain was probably the best, one of his many intelligent books that inspired even better movies. Crichton also stood out as a man who identified the dangers of politicized “consensus science.”
From Iain Murray:
Michael Crichton has died “unexpectedly,” with reports suggesting a private struggle against cancer. may he rest in peace. He was one of the few people publicly interested in science with the courage to speak out against the direction environmental politics had pushed it. All who want to honor his memory should read his Caltech speech, Aliens cause global warming.
Crichton was also a man of many talents, directing films and producing TV. His movie, “Coma,” was a heck of a thriller with the additional attraction of Geneviève Bujold as the lead.
