This book is 20 years old. The shiny sparkly high tech is old and stale, but the financial trickery is pretty good. The fight scenes are amazingly one sided: It seems that, aside from the sneak attack in the beginning, the American fighters have rolled the highest scores in luck. Nothing -ever- goes wrong. The sub-thread with the philandering politician in the Oval Office took place three years before the Clinton, that’s kind of pre-scient.
The ending, though… it feels like a kid’s wish-list: I want to blow up my school and kill the principal and all the teachers and hurray! Fresh start for the next year! or the next book.
