SF Authors Discuss their Favorite Heinlein Books

On the TOR/Forge's Blog they are asking authors what their favorite Heinlein book is.  So far there are entries from David Brin, David Drake, David Hartwell and L.E, Modesitt Jr.

I liked the following comment by David Brin the best of all the comments though:

For the most part, with Robert Heinlein, you felt he wasn’t so much lecturing or preaching as offering to argue with you!  His books let you fume and mutter and debate with this bright, cantankerous, truly American soul, long after his body expired.  And this joy in argument–in posing and chewing over thought experiments–is the very soul of what it means to be a writer or reader of science fiction.
