This book made me go out and get my hands on every other "known space" book he wrote. From the Flatlander era to Crashlander to Ringworld and beyond, some of the greatest sci-fi ever told.

I haven't read anything sci fi for awhile..but do like sci fi if well written and the world building is realistic and not to over the top...I have been reading vampire and more adventure and fantasy like that lately but I read this and Loved it.. what a wonderful story and what cool but dangerous place! it was very imaginative to make a world like this.. and the book was very exciting.. Id love to read more about ring world.. and the characters were really well written. some books are so good its like your there.. and forget about the real world and this is one of those books.. I highly recommend it!

One of the most imaginative writers creates one of the most imaginative worlds. The author says "I myself have dreamed up an intermediate step between a Dyson Sphere and a planet. Build a ring 93 million miles in radius--one Earth orbit which would make it 600 million miles long. If we have the mass of Jupiter to work with, and if we make it a million miles wide, we get a thickness of about a thousand meters. The Ringworld would thus be much sturdier than a Dyson sphere. The thing is roomy enough: three million times the area of the EArth. It will be some time before anyone complains of the crowding."
Meet the Pierson's Puppeteers, the Kzinti, the Pak hominids--meet Louis Wu who has lived so long he thinks he is becoming bored----Boy is Louis in for a shock!
