His best short story collection

There are a number of collections of Heinlein's short stories. This one is my favorite. I've been occasionally rereading this book for 40 or 50 years. (I don't actually remember when I first encountered this book, but I read my first Heinlein book when I was in fifth grade). I have no idea how many times I have read these stories, but two of them still bring me to tears after all these years and miles. These stories encompass some of the very best writing that Heinlein produced. You need to read them.

Heinlein at his Best

Classic 1950s science fiction. If you want a SF nostalgia trip, this is the book. A couple of "young adult" stories included, but in the main all work from Heinlein's classic period. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Tom Weiner's narration is also exceptional.
