Overview

"There is no such thing as luck. There is only adequate or inadequate preparation to cope with a statistical universe." —Robert A. Heinlein, from Time Enough for Love.

Be Prepared – Or Die!

Bill Lermer travels with his father, stepmother and stepsister to colonize a Jovian moon in the process of being terraformed. Out here, self-reliance is the key to survival—and Bill finds that his Boy Scout motto isn't merely a pretty saying. It's a necessary rule for survival!

This is it: what we think is the best of the classic Robert Heinlein adventure novels that influenced a generation of engineers and space scientists and still set the heart racing and the mind afire!

I first read this book when i was about 9 years old. Found it in a dresser drawer at my grandparents house, the book belonged to my dad. The smell of an old pulp science fiction book from that era is unique and will forever bring back fond memories. This book opened my eyes to pure scifi, and made me want to go on an adventure. It is funny, exciting, and bright and shinny enough to make you feel hope again. It was originally written as a serial in boy scout magazines, which is a huge component of the story. I will read this story to my son when he is old enough to grasp it.

Written in the typical Heinlein style of the 50's - an easy read on a cold night
