If you are a fan of Heinlein and the books he wrote about the Long family, you will enjoy reading these quotes! Regarding Lazerus Long - this charachter lived for 2,000 years! What knowledge he must have learned over the years. However, in his words paraphrased,You can't teach a person wisdom, they have to learn it for themselves.

Here are all the pithy little quips from Heinlein's most enduring character. All the one-liners you wish you could remember are here, all the philosophical musings of The Eldest. It's a short book, but one that I keep bedside to peruse time and again.

Don't waste your time with the Nook sample. It is only 7 pages long and those seven pages are all the usual copyrights and lists of Heinlein's books. Page seven is the title page. There is not even one sentence of the book in the sample.

This is a book that you will go back to again and again (and again and again!) for that special phrase. If you are a lover of Lazarus Long you must buy this book. The wisdom expressed in the turn of a simple phrase speaks volumes.

From such a talented writer I found this to be a pretty lame book.

There's a lot of potential here that was ignored. Heinlein's Lazarus Long character put forth a lot of insight and pithy commentary on life, loving, and common sense, but it's all lost in this unorganized random sequence of quotes. First, there's one quote per page. That would be okay if a little context was provided along with the quote. Who was LL saying this to? What made him say it? What is the significance? What book is it from? etc., etc. Second, there's no rhyme or reason to the order -- it's just a sequence of quotes. How about grouping them by topic or keyword? And then have an index where you could find a quote that would relate to the topic. I'm a big fan of LL quotes, but this is just silly.

the free preview of this book goes to the title page, not even to a table of contents. Robert would not be amused. Shame on the publisher for this travesty.
