In one of Heinlein’s most controversial bestsellers, a recruit in a future world is sent through the toughest boot camp in the Universe to join the Terran Mobile Infantry in battle against mankind’s most alarming enemy.

Juan Rico signed up with the Federal Reserve on a lark, but despite the hardships and rigorous training, he finds himself determined to make it as a cap trooper. In boot camp he learns how to become a soldier, but it is in war that he will learn why.

Many consider this Hugo Award–winning book to be Heinlein’s best. Forget the battle scenes and the high-tech weapons; this is Heinlein in his element, talking people and politics.

Listener Opinions

    " Interesting book though it has no apparent plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mark Carver | 2/16/2014

    " An interesting piece of military sci-fi, though the focus was more on the military and not enough on the sci-fi. Only about 20% of this book was action, and the rest was boot camp/training/philosophy of war/etc. Actually this book was a bit too self-serious and while I have to agree with pretty much every point it made, it felt a bit too preachy. This would be an interesting book for a Basic Military Strategy course but for rip-roaring action, check out the tongue-in-cheek movie adaptation instead. "

    " This is an interesting book to read and good to juxtapose with the film version (which features opposing sentiments). "
