    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.

    Overall

    This collection of short stories, ill-advisedly novelized, turns out to be a muddled
    jumbled of wish fulfillment fantasies. In it, the author displays his awareness of the
    existence of many sciences and disciplines and shows us his basic comprehension of none of them.
    When I originally found this book on Audible, I was surprised that I'd never heard of
    this book, nor its author before even though there are apparently dozens of books set
    in the same universe. After listening, my surprise was gone. Not for the hard sci fi fan.

    As for production values, I liked the narrator's voice, but I was confused until chapter 3
    by the epigraphs at the beginning of every chapter, probably due to the awkward novelization.
    He also doesn't really vary the voices much, so it's difficult to remember exactly who's
    talking for page after page of exposition.
