Interesting review, I guess you can't like or admire someone and also write about him..

Interesting. :lol:

There's a lot of that kind of assumption in the reviews as they appear. According to one I never met Heinlein; according to another I am academically "unprepared." People seem to assume that the material of the introduction is emotional stuff that can be ignored; nobody seems to realize that the introduction is just as factual, if a bit more global, than the rest of the text.

I'm trying in the introduction to pose the question for people who are not familiar with the subject, why is Heinlein worth studying? It comes down to a question of values.

Do what RAH did, don't read the reviews.
Seriously, I want to see what you come up with on your own. I damn sure like Vol. I.
