After all these decades, I still wander around muttering "tanstaafl."

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is the favorite of many and a good place to start, I think. But do stay away from his later works, expecially The Number of the Beast, unless you enjoy living through an old man's second adolescence.

Actually now that I think of it I think The Number of the Beast was the name of the book I had read.

"unless you enjoy living through an old man's second adolescence.


...and what characterizes an old man's second adolescence as compared to, say, a middle-aged man's second adolescence? I deal with adolescents all the time and heaven forbid any adult return down that road!
