Product description

Review

''One of the superb Heinlein stories that has excitement, urbanity, humanity, rationality, pace, understanding, and is a joy to read.'' -- New York Times

''Rarely has Heinlein pushed his imagination further. . . A vivid, stirring experience.'' --Chicago Tribune

''He showed us where the future is.'' --Tom Clancy

''The word that comes to mind for him is essential. As a writer--eloquent, impassioned, technically innovative--he reshaped science fiction in a way that defined it for every writer who followed him. . . He was the most significant science fiction writer since H. G. Wells.'' -- Robert Silverberg

''Robert A. Heinlein may have been the all-time most important writer of genre sf.'' --Science Fiction Encyclopedia --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
