This was my third reading of Space Relations and it stands up pretty well. I re-read very few books, but there is something about this one that resonates.

I just came across this book (hard-cover) in my bookcase and when I checked my goodreads list, I realized I had never added it. I remember picking it up from a remainder bin while I was in university. I also remember that I really liked it, (but my standards were a lot lower then ;-). I have no idea if I would admire it as much as I did then, but I suspect I would. I do know that I have re-read it at least once.
