    "The Dean"

    It was very cool to finally hear the VOICE of Robert Heinlein, who I've been reading for more than 20 years.

    Obviously, not science fiction, but an interesting look at how he saw the REAL world....

    "Wow!"

    Not only is this a chance to hear the great Heinlein himself speak, but his words are thought provoking. A must listen.

    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "Nothing unexpected if you know Heinlein"

    Worth the listen, but not earthshaking material.
