Reader reviews for The First Billion

VERY VERY bad book. 90% of the book was skipped, or skimmed. It went from tangent to tangent within tangent within tangent. I kept wondering when I was going to get back to the story. On a scale of 1 to 10 (bad to good) I would give it a minus 0. I purchased this book electronically and it pointed out one really bad thing about ebooks. You don't know what you have until you start to read it. Unfortunately I bought two books by this author, and am really afraid of trying to read it. I must say that the story (if you cut all the other bs out) wasn't all that bad. Just a very poorly constructed book. It appeared as if it was a class assignment of 100 people and each was REQUIRED to add something to the book. SAD.
