  • 1. The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein Stellar (Or Rather Lunar) Work!Tom Clancy has said of Robert A. Heinlein, We proceed down the pathmarked by his ideas. He shows us where the future is. Nowhere is thismore true than in Heinleins gripping tale of revolution on the moon in2076, where Loonies are kept poor and oppressed by an Earth-basedAuthority that turns huge profits at their expense. A small band ofdissidents, including a one-armed computer jock, a radical young woman,a past-his-prime academic and a nearly omnipotent computer namedMike, ignite the fires of revolution despite the near certainty of failure anddeath.Features:* Click here to view our Condition Guide and Shipping PricesI dont know that I have anything new to say in praise of this novel.

From rebellion to war, fighting for you and yours, the sticky partsmust be waded through.His ideas about never allowing yourself to get trampled by the standardway of life was refreshing, and I wish that more politicians could embracethis philosophy.
