Every time I read the book, I find myself sympathizing with the same characters, rooting for them, etc., even though I know about the final outcome of the stories I remember.
I do not like every story, but when was the last time you bought a music CD and liked every song on it?
Even though both the book and Star Trek are written from the perspective of being in the future when it was written, Star Trek is much more perceptive on scientific inventions to come. The Past Through Tomorrow is not only wrong in some cases, it goes in a different direction. Many of the stories are as much human interest stories as they are science fiction stories. The wrong directions really do nothing to detract from the stories.
In the US, as far as I know, the book has always been published in one volume. In the UK, the book was split and published in two volumes. When buying thy book you have to make sure whether you are buying the entire book, Vol. I or Vol. II.
Review: The Past Through Tomorrow (Future History or "Heinlein Timeline")User Review - Tim Weakley - Goodreads
This was my first experience with the idea of a coherent story arc over many individual tales. I remember being fascinated by Heinlein's ability to stretch out a world over many hundreds of years and keep references to concepts and people from past stories. Loved it. Read full review
