    Birthright: The Book of Man is a brilliant novel of science fiction that carefully constructs a blueprint of mankind's history - social, political, economic, scientific, and religious - for the next 18,000 years.

    What an interesting tale and a wonderful book. A bit dated with the material but still worth listening to.

    They mustn't harm a human being, they must obey human orders, and they must protect their own existence...but only so long as that doesn't violate rules one and two. With these Three Laws of Robotics, humanity embarked on a bold new era of evolution that would open up enormous possibilities, and unforeseen risks.

    Herb says: "Forget the violence - Read this one for the humor"
    "Amazing"
    Overall

    Well writen and well read. This is by far one of my favorite books.

    You'll be awe-inspired by the heroic efforts of the crew of the Endurance, a ship that battled its way for six weeks through thousands of miles of pack ice while ironically only a day's sail from its destination.

    Frank says: "Unbelievable"
    "Worth hearing."
    Overall

    The historical value of this tale is worth listening to. It is well read. I enjoyed it.

    He wakes alone, nameless, in a strangely bucolic day-after-tomorrow world. His amnesia is near-total; he cannot remember his name and doesn't recognize anything around him, but he knows with absolute certainty that someone has tried to kill him – and will surely try again. As he tries to discover the identity of the person who wants him dead, he quickly begins to unravel sinister truths, which make it clear that the ramifications of his search are far greater than he could ever have imagined.

    Craig says: "Great story"
    "The main character is a lot like me."
    Overall

    This book is well writen and fun to listen to. It is a little too much like the Matrix to be original. I recomend it none the less.

    Story

    Humans first reached out to the stars traveling at a painfully slow sublight crawl - then they found the Bose network, which allowed ships to jump instantaneously from one node in the galactic arm to another. Once in the network they found the Artifacts: enigmatic structures, millions of years old, left by a vanished race. Incomprehensible to both human and non-human minds, the Artifacts seemingly defy natural law.

    Donald says: "Singularity of Thought"
    "Convergence is a terrible book"
    Overall

    Convergence was terrible. The characters were flat. The literary style was uninteresting. The narrator was like listening to nails on a chalkboard. Save your money. Stay away from this book.
