This is true science fiction with a twist of history in it. I like the way the author presented vignettes of "historical" situations to get his points across. It almost felt like the events truly happened. Do not expect a "main character" or "hero"--because there isn't one. Its a progression of the origin of mankind's rise here on Earth to a Galactic Empire and its outcome told in a series of stories which make you think and ponder, yet its entertaining enough to want to find out more and not bore you.
I had read other books and short stories by Mike Resnick,however, I now have a better understanding of them because of this book. If you have not read anything by him, I highly recommend that you read this book first.
