Book Review: Trader’s World by Charles Sheffield

One line review:

Boys Own Dale Carnegie Post-Apocalyptic Adventures with casual racism and misogyny.

That tells you everything you need to know about this book. I wasn’t expecting much from it, but it was much worse than I anticipated. I’m about half-way through it at the moment, and can’t decide whether to just give up in disgust or keep reading in horrified fascination to see if it gets even worse (which is all that’s kept me going with it so far).
