About the Author
Robert Anson Heinlein was born in Missouri in 1907, and was raised there. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1929, but was forced by illness to retire from the Navy in 1934. He settled in California and over the next five years held a variety of jobs while doing post-graduate work in mathematics and physics at the University of California. In 1939 he sold his first science fiction story to Astounding magazine and soon devoted himself to the genre.
He was a four-time winner of the Hugo Award for his novels Stranger in a Strange Land (1961), Starship Troopers (1959), Double Star (1956), and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress (1966). His Future History series, incorporating both short stories and novels, was first mapped out in 1941. The series charts the social, political, and technological changes shaping human society from the present through several centuries into the future.
Robert A. Heinlein's books were among the first works of science fiction to reach bestseller status in both hardcover and paperback. He continued to work into his eighties, and his work never ceased to amaze, to entertain, and to generate controversy. By the time hed died, in 1988, it was evident that he was one of the formative talents of science fiction: a writer whose unique vision, unflagging energy, and persistence, over the course of five decades, made a great impact on the American mind.

This novel is often referred to as the 2nd book in the Lazarus Long Series (Methuselah's Children, Time Enough For Love, The Number of the Beast, The Cat Who Walks Through Walls and To Sail Beyond the Sunset). Lazarus Long (nee Woodrow Wilson Smith) is the longest living member of the Howard Families. The book includes numerous short stories/tales as told by Lazarus through Justin Foote (Chief Archivist) and also includes a number of his "saying" (collected in another book as well.) Stories in the book are about events that take place after Methuselah's Children. And one about meeting his mother (and himself). It is fun, amazing, sad, and enlightening.
If you have enjoyed Heinlein's Future History novels, you will probably enjoy this one as well.
This Kindle version is a horrible, unedited mess! I have owned multiple hard copies of this novel over the past few decades and wanted to add the Kindle version for convenience.
I regret that I wasted my money on this. I mean this literally when I say that I have NEVER read a literary work that was so filled with errors! Page after page after page!
This Kindle version is an embarrassment to the Robert A. Heinlein Estate and should never have been allowed to be released.
To Amazon: Is there a way to "return" this and get my money back? This Kindle version is of such poor quality that I consider it unacceptable. Very disappointing!
UPDATE: On May 8, 2014, after a phone call and several emails with Amazon customer service, I have returned this Kindle purchase and received a full refund, as well as a promotional credit. The representative also said that this Kindle version would be sent to their Kindle Quality Control team to be reviewed. Every person I dealt with was polite and professional and accommodating and I rate their service as Five-Star. This outcome was based on me contacting Amazon customer service directly, not on Amazon noting this review and contacting me. If this book is released in a corrected Kindle version, I will repurchase it and update my review accordingly.
