The Man Who Folded Himself, written in 1973 (and reissued by BenBella in 2003) is a classic science fiction novel by award-winning author David Gerrold. This work was nominated for both Hugo and Nebula awards and is considered by some critics to be the finest time travel novel ever written.
"David Gerrold proves that he can do all the things that made us love Heinlein's storytelling - and often better." (Orson Scott Card)
"This is all widely imaginative and mindbending... Gerrold is such a good writer that he keeps us reading through... shifts of time, space and character -- right into pre-history... After reading this one, time-machine addicts will never quite be able to look at the gadget again as a simple plaything." (Publisher's Weekly)
"A major talent." (Booklist)

One of my first tastes of trues science fiction
This book explored so many avenues of philosophy and inner exploration that it may make you uncomfortable at times. For me this is one of my all time favorites. ( Enders Game(full saga), The Giver, Lucifer Hammer, Pandora's Star, and Dune) to name some off the top of my head.
It explored personal identity and sexuality without giving up anything, the book helped me mature and was fascinating and interesting.
