    Crystal Fire is a tale of the human factors in technology; the pride and jealousies coupled with scientific and economic aspiration that led to the creation of modern microelectronics and ignited the greatest technological explosion in history.

    Ziloni says: "Interesting and not light on the science either!"
    "Good book; wrong voice actor"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Good book but here's the deal: reader Dennis McKee sounds exactly like Sam Elliot -- you know the actor with the mustache who was born to play western-cowboy rolls. I could not unlink this audio from Sam Elliot's image in my head. This is a book about the invention of the transistor, but it sounds like ol' Cookie on the cattle drive sitting around the campfire spinning yarns. Mr. McKee would be fine for some things -- maybe a Louis L'Amour book -- but he's not the right guy for a high tech book. This is EXACTLY my kind of book, but it took me 2 years to get though the audio in fits and starts.


    Would you recommend Crystal Fire to your friends? Why or why not?

    Print not audio.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Sounded like Sam Elliot.


    Could you see Crystal Fire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Nah, too boring for TV.
