I first read Door into Summer and Have Spacesuit Will Travel as a elementary school kid and only got this edition for Puppet Masters and to replace paperbacks with a hardcover. Door into Summer, Have Spacesuit, Starship Troopers and other Heinlein novels were the summum bonum of science fiction when I was little. My attitudes, and the genre itself, had changed by the time I got to college. My opinion of Heinlein now is rather low.

Contains The Puppet Masters, Double Star, and A Door Into Summer. In the Puppet Masters we encounter a parasitic alien race that enslaves the human race. In Double Star an actor is called upon to impersonate an important political figure in his dealings with Martians. A Door Into Summer sends a man thirty years into the future.
Thought it was a pretty good read on the whole if you like science fiction. I enjoyed it.
