If they liked Sci Fi, this is the earliest example of popular alternate history work that I am aware of and its fairly good writing.
Parts of the book are very 'Mark Twain' kind of amusing yarn spinning, and other parts read more like modern sci-fi.
Excellent reader. I'll probably look for other books he's read and consider buying them no matter what they are.
I'm sure I'll keep this is my rotation of books and read it at least a few more times. There were a few slow parts, and some parts that were just too rooted in the time it was written for me to really follow completely, but overall I liked it.
