Seen on Twitter today. Discuss. (file under "Heinlein was right!")

More people should read that book (as anyone 'in the know' will tell you, it's totally different from the movie)

Although it'll resonate with anyone who's been through basic or boot camp.
 
I never even knew there was a book; I assumed it started as a screenplay. I'll have to look it up now - I'm a scifi geek. Thanks for the recommendation.
 
Ordered it from Amazon. Supposed to be here today. Hope it's a good read.

Not-a-spoiler: Dubois is the most infuriating teacher you'll ever meet.

Remarkably few earthshattering kabooms.

Lots of thought-provoking dialog.

Two of the reasons the movie couldn't be like the book.

And the book couldn't contain Dina Meyer's boobs.

If it works for you, then go for "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" which should resonate for any American.
