As startling and provocative as his famous Stranger in a Strange Land, here is Heinlein’s grand masterpiece about a man supremely talented, immensely old, and obscenely wealthy who discovers that money can buy everything.

Johann Sebastian Bach Smith was immensely rich—and very old. Though his mind was still keen, his body was worn out. His solution was to have surgeons transplant his brain into a new body. The operation was a great success—but the patient was no longer Johann Sebastian Bach Smith. He was now fused with the very vocal personality of his gorgeous, recently deceased secretary, Eunice—with mind-blowing results! Together they must learn to share control of her body.

Once again, master storyteller Robert A. Heinlein delivers a wild and intriguing classic of science fiction. Written at the dawn of the 1970s, this novel is the brilliantly shocking story of the ultimate transplant.

    " Despite its problems, this is still one of my favourite Heinlein books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Piggie | 2/14/2014

    " This book amused me. I loved the interactions between the characters: heartfelt, honest and raw. There was a lot of things to consider here. The social commentary was amazing. Its a look at gender identity and sexuality. Very relevant topics in today's culture. The writing voice is choppy at times, but that's pretty much always been my opinion of Heinlein. And by far a minor issue is light of all the great things happening in this book! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Jammies | 2/12/2014

    " The idea behind this book was splendid and ground-breaking. When I started it, I felt sure that it could be an exploration of the differences between men and women, and how those differences are built and reinforced by both biology and environment. However, Mr. Heinlein found it easier to give the main character a deus ex machina and spent the second half of the book having said main character hop into bed with anyone who looked even remotely interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Charles Spitzig | 2/3/2014

    " One of the worst books I've ever read. The plot was non-existent. The characters were old-fashioned stereotypes. The only positive thing I can say about the characters was that there was gay couple that was (briefly) shown in a positive manner. VERY rare for the time, at least in SF. Also, I think it was a specific result of writing this book that Heinlein started a some kind of blood collection organization that still exists. "
