* This book is different from any other sci fi I've ever read. It's a unique twist on a first contact story.

* The hero, Redrick Schuhart, is a lovable scoundrel.

* It's a quick read--under 200 pages.

* The particular edition (2012 Chicago Review Press) that I read included useful "extras"--an introduction by Ursula K. LeGuin and an afterward by Boris Strugatsky.
