Lede[edit]

There's a slight problem with last sentence of the first paragraph:

Widely admired for its credible presentation of a comprehensively imagined future human society on both the Earth and the moon, it is generally considered one of Heinlein's major novels as well as one of the most important science fiction novels ever written.[1]

Mostly, by whom is it "generally considered one of Heinlein's major novels" and "one of the most important science fiction novels ever written"? I've read through the source, and 1) I didn't see Ted Gioia comment to that effect, and 2) even if he had, he doesn't exactly seem to be qualified in making this assessment. The source seems like just a fancy blog. If there are no strong objections, I'll remove it from the lede. Ljpernic (talk) 12:15, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
