Harrison's best work - volume 1
The description indicates this is a compendium of the Deathworld trilogy, it is not. This is only the original Deathworld novel, but this single volume is Harry Harrison's best work.
Harrison is prone to writing superior, arrogant male lead characters that are all but infallible. It can be unbearable. But the star of Deathworld is the planet, and his lead character is physically the weakest and most vulnerable human on the planet so he needs to live by his wits. This is classic scifi.
