Post Forrestal Lecture
Heinlein's 1973 Forrestal Lecture at the US Naval Academy is available on CD at Amazon. I have never heard it and will probably purchase it. Any opinions on the lecture from those who have heard it?

Thanks for letting us know about the CD; I'm getting a copy. I've read the text of the lecture, but not heard it. I thought the content was great. I expect the delivery to be every bit as good.

There are several versions of the transcript in print, some much shorter than others. I believe the transcript in Analog is significantly longer, with a preface about writing for a living, than the version collected in Requiem.

I ass/u/me the recording is complete in any case. A report would be appreciated.

I've read a version that includes a discussion about writing, but I'm not certain where. Probably the Journal.
