    I was pleasantly surprised by these stories. I had thought they would be more dated and while that was true for some of the technology, it was not true for the keen observance of humans in and out of space. I also enjoyed the descriptions of our next-door neighbors in our galaxy, mainly the Martians, Venerians and Lunies (colonists). My favorite short story was the one about the lunar colonists who decided to 're-home' to Earth and what they experienced. A very well observed study of human behavior. My second favorite one was about the lawyer and wealthy earthling being sent to Venus. All alone those two stories are well worth listening to the audio book.
