I absolutely enjoyed this book, when I would stop listening I couldn't wait until I started again. He has some very interesting theories and facts that are presented in an enjoyable educational way. Although some of the theories presented I don't agree with, he does list some important things to think about. If you are fascinated by culture, and want to understand the history of humans this is a good place to start.
I am a huge Micheal Crichton fan, his books have always been able to juggle science and fiction together seamlessly. However "Next" is a bit of a let down. I loved some of the individual story lines, others I didn't care for. Some just didn't have a resolution. I didn't know anything about this book or its subject when I began and I still feel I don't know a lot.
"State of Fear" was a great book as it provided true and accurate facts and an easily presentable way. Maybe genetics is difficult to explain to the average person, like myself. So unless you are extremely interested or knowledgeable about genetics you may not find this to be his best work.
