I tried to like this story. I really did. It started out really nice. Generic accident that somehow sends our hero to the past, with all the knowledge that he knew still with him.

The overall plot is excellent, as is the writing.The first couple of chapters are very interesting to me. He deals with having gone back in time and tries to adjust into his past life and change things that affected him the first time through.

However, then things are taken beyond what my willful suspension of disbelief will allow me to ignore. The protagonist is, simply too succesful at everything he does. Nothing fails, and always works really well. There is no shortage of money, any problems are quickly overcome. There is little or no protracted conflict to be seen.
