If I could make people read only one Heinlein would be 'The Moon is a Harsh Mistress'. FANTASTIC book. I have to agree that Stranger in a Strange Land is *not* one of the Master's best, but it is one that people who aren't RAH fans often love, even if they love no other book by him. If I had to name the top five by RAH

1)The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
2) Starship Troopers (ignore the movie, please)
3) Puppet Masters (this was well before body snatchers)
4) Double Star
5)...tough call...I'll reserve this for his favorite being 'The Rolling Stones'

I'd also recommend, 'Friday', 'Citizen of the Galaxy', 'Space Cadet', 'Podkayne of Mars'...and many others. :)

Time Enough for Love is also good...but has unusual sexual situations that many would find disturbingly perverse. If you can get past's a damn fine book.
I also can't recommend the entire Miles Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold highly enough. I like it even better than the Honor Harrington books! :)
