This is the 2nd of two books (the 1st being "The Integral Trees") written by Larry Niven on life in near-zero gravity. His postulations on how life and social structures would develop are very interesting. This is more hard sci-fi than space opera. While I enjoyed "The Integral Trees" more, this was a good companion piece and got into more detail on interactions between inhabitants of different trees.
