A hero without peer or scruples, Sam Gunn has a nose for trouble, money, and women--though not necessarily in that order. A man with the ego (and stature) of a Napoleon, the business acumen of a P. T. Barnum, and the raging hormones of a teenage boy, Sam is the finest astronaut NASA ever trained and dumped.
But more than money, more than women, Sam Gunn loves justice. (And he really "does" love money and women.) Whether he's suing the Pope, helping twin sisters entangled in the "virtual sex" trade, or on trial for his life on charges of interplanetary genocide, you can be sure of one thing: this is one space jockey who'll meet every challenge with a smile on his lips, an ace up his sleeve and a weapon in his pocket.
Now, for the first time between covers, Hugo-winner Ben Bova presents all the tales of Sam Gunn to date, including three never before collected in book form. Here is the entire chronicle of Sam Gunn, trailblazer and scoundrel, as he scams his way from one end of the Solar System to the other, giving bold new meaning to the term "venture capitalist.""

I liked short stories within solar systems on various subjects from astrorid mining, old age retirement home for the disabled, vacuuming orbital junk to spat between USSR & diamond cartel on lab grown jewellery grade diamonds.

It looks like this is a series of short stories about the protagonist stitched together with a plot line that serves to pull them all together into one book. I got bored enough to quit about halfway through. A very American book with the anti-authority meme (little guy overcomes the corrupt, unimaginative, by-the-book establishment).

Each story. on its own, might be amusing, but the repetitiveness of the themes, and the distancing of the male protagonist led to a less than engaging read.
