If you are going to read 100 Sci-fi Books in your life.

This book needs to be in the top ten, of that stack of 100 books.
Reading may not change your life, but it may change your perspective
on life if you read it while your young enough to be influenced by

Its a classical Sci-fi Tale, and it puts a lot out there for you to consider,
maybe it was more timely to read it back in the 70's and 80's Like I did, but
I do think it holds significant weight and should be required reading for those
looking to expand their perspectives on Literature and Life.

Great Book, Great Sci-fi.
Can you Grok it baby?

The stunning story of an earthling, born and educated on Mars, who arrives on our planet with suerhuman powers and a total ignorance of the mores of man. You must get the book to contune this story.........

Robert A. Heinlein is my favorite author of all time...I have read this particular book many times over the years, and it's full of subtle layers, so that each time I come away with something I had missed from the time before. It's like buried treasure...

If you have never read this book, or anything else from this author be prepared for a great adventure of the mind, with compelling characters and thought-stimulating ideas. Heinlein took on some very controversial (for the time period it was written in!) subjects in this book and stood them on their collective ears...I hope you will enjoy reading it even HALF as much as I did, and that you will grok it in the fullness of time.

I read this book years ago and had a paperback. I wanted a hardback to add to my favorite book collection. It is an excellent book and I recommend it to all. If you have read any Robert Heinlein........this by far his best.
