'The kind of book that a writer of [Heinlein's] stature deserves...
Remarkable. It makes Heinlein seem like the most interesting
science fiction author around, not just of his era, but of ours.'
'An insightful addition to the academic study and appreciation of Heinlein's body of work... does a fantastic job of looking at the major themes of Heinlein's career. 9*' Starburst magazine
