    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.

    Amazon Customer says: "This IS your father's Sci-Fi"
    "Birthright, clearly an infant!"
    Overall

    This book is Science Fiction the way it used to be and the way most would hope it never is again; a lot of exposition (info dump) and not a lot of action or character development.

    I tried to listen to this on the 13 hour drive to the beach and it simply didn't grab me while I was in an extremely receptive mood!
    After 3 hours of getting nothing out of this I fell back to the latest issue of F&SF (a sure thing! Contemporary SF at it's best!).

    It's telling that this is Resnick's first book. What I don't understand is why anyone would choose to use valuable resources to produce this story. Resnick has so many more stories/books that are really good. This was a disappointment. I hope to be bored someday enough to give this another go. If I do and I'm surprised by a turn of events, I'll let you know.
