Robert A. Heinlein’s Legacy

My favorite author is Robert A. Heinlein, so it was a real pleasure to see him discussed in the pages of today’s Wall St. Journal. Heinlein’s work, for those of you haven’t read it, is incredible. While his earliest novels were published in the 1940s, they have stood the test of time are are—with rare exception—as-good or better reads today than when originally released. He predicted many technologies we consider commonplace today (like wireless phones) decades before they became reality. Though sometimes controversial or offensive, Heinlein’s books never fail to make you think—even if you’re not a fan of science fiction.
