The premise is a good one, if not entirely original: multiple universes where infinite versions of your life are playing out, and a device to punch a hole through to the next one. Maybe this universe doesn't have a particular money-making fad, like Rubik's Cube, so you can exploit that and grow rich. But there are others out there with transfer devices, who are watching out for signs of other travelers and they will come after you if they notice your new-found notoriety. Oh, and what do you do with the copy of yourself that you find in the next universe?

Unfortunately, about half-way through this book I almost gave up because I started to wonder if I really cared what happened to the main characters. I just didn't connect with the "good guys". The pacing did pick up at the end, and it is apparent that the author plans a sequel or two based on some of the plot points that go unresolved.
