I gave up on this book after the sixth chapter. The subject seemed interesting to me, and the book's description intrigued me -- but I was sorely disappointed. Berlinksi is not a good story teller. His narrative is often disjointed, and he tries too hard to be clever. Much of the discussion seemed too obvious to be interesting, whereas parts were just confusing. Overall, a frustrating experience.

What would have made One, Two, Three better?
The author should have spent more time on the subject and less time trying to sound witty. I could almost here the author laughing at his own jokes behind the scenes. I was hoping for something like Zero - A biography of a dangerous idea.
Has One, Two, Three turned you off from other books in this genre?
No, but I don't plan to read or listen to any of the authors other works.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator neither added nor detracted from the book.
What character would you cut from One, Two, Three?
The books supposed characters, the numbers 1, 2, 3, are already absent. Thus, there are no characters to cut.
Any additional comments?
This author took a fascinating subject and made it really boring.
