I bet the title of this review got you guessing...unless you've read the book. To grok in fullness is to understand fully, so fully that the true meaning can't be expressed in any human tongue only in martian. Don't worry you don't need to learn martian to read this book...just as well you couldn't pronounce any of the words anyway. This book does make you think a lot about the society we as modern homo sapiens live in and the possibility of how we have developed as a species along with mans inhumanity to man.....but more worringly how our inhumanity could be percieved by an extraterrestrial race powerful enough to wipe us out with an eyeblink. the other major cornerstones of this book are an alternative twist on spirituality and like many of heinleins book an slightly different view on familial relations.
Sorry I could only give this a FH, but I don't understand! This is listed under fiction but you don't tell us if there is a story or not. Just by reading your op I would assume that this was some kind of intellectual take on alien life forms.
