Zephram Cochran He Ain't

João Magueijo (don't ask me to pronounce his name...), a Portuguese physicist has penned a book called Faster Than the Speed of Light. Flashy title, but this dude means it. Seems he believes the speed of light is sort of like the speed of sound. It's not an absolute, but more depends on environmental conditions. Makes sense to me, but the math is WAY over my head.

Oh, and his book is on sale. Seems no one else understand it either.
