Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
"...I have been on the biggest merry-go-round of all, the streetcar with the longest run; I’ve paid my money and ridden all the way to the end of the line and back again. It was worth it; I don’t regret the expense."

One of the greatest science fiction writers of all time, Heinlein takes us on a fascinating and unforgettable journey of our own planet Earth. From the bawdy sex shows of New Orleans to the squalid slums of Indonesia, from the Panama Canal to the African veldt and beyond, Heinlein shares his adventures with all the wit and humanity, all the keen observation and bravura storytelling, of his greatest fiction.

"The vast range of his achievements lie all around us, and will always be a part of our lives."
Arthur C. Clarke

"A great writer, an extraordinary man, a figure of high nobility; there was no one else remotely like him in our field."
Robert Silverberg

"He was as widely traveled and widely read a man as I have ever met."
Poul Anderson

"Heinlein is the taproot of contemporary science fiction. He is a radix for all of us."
Greg Bear

"The most influential science fiction writer of all time."

No figure in science fiction is more beloved and admired than Robert A. Heinlein. Four-time winner of the Hugo Award for best novel, Heinlein put science fiction on the national bestseller lists and was the first author to be named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America. For more than four decades, he has thrilled and delighted readers with such classic books as Stranger in a Strange Land, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, Friday, and Time Enough for Love. Heinlein died May 1988.
