Very unsatisfying.  The beginning wrapped up the revolution, but only by killing the rebels, not by resolving the crisis.  Maybe that's more real... I don't know.   The rest of the book is spent doing absolutely nothing, until the end, when the third revolution is described in a couple of pages!  I think this was another book used simply to show off the authors ideas about technology of the future, and the sexually free society.
