Read it as it came out in serialized form. It's definitely a YA -- most notably in its One Essential Young Man theme (we need more YA SF with female leads, everyone) and the eventual Enhanced Animal Companion -- but his solution to how to build an interplanetary culture is definitely a Big New Idea, replacing the need for an unreasonably fast spacecraft drive with several large-but-not-as-unlikely breakthroughs and a not-wholly-unreasonable semi-accidental social change. Worth reading.

Now, I know for a fact that the only reason he's still on that cat tree is because he's nailed there!
