Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Appearing for the first time in paperback, Heinlein's SPACE CADET tells a truly marvellous story of young men opening up new territories in space, and introduces a hero to equal the great pioneers of history.

The story is about the young men who are training to be officers in the Interplanetary Patrol. The hero is Matthew Dodson, who becomes involved in a rescue operation on a distant planet. It turns into a disaster, but he-finally extricates the leaderless team and reaffirms the glorious interplanetary traditions of bravery, resourcefulness and revolutionary brotherhood.

Already recognised in America as one of the great S.F. classics, this latest Heinlein the best-selling NEL series confirms his reputation as the most brilliant and the most popular author of speculative fiction alive today.
