Read from September 10 to 29, 2014 — I own a copy , read count: 2

I read this way back before high school c. 1968 and planned on re-reading it for years. Okay, perhaps not 46 years later but I finally got to re-reading it ("waiting will fill"). It still holds up with a 5 star rating. This was one of the first science fiction books I read and started a long interest in science fiction as well as Heinlein. Some say it is dated but only with some technology and even much of that still hasn't come about. The only downside, especially with this "original uncut version" is pages and pages of Jubal's pontification. Skimming material, much of which not worthy of grokking.
