Niven's take on alien culture is not to be missed. Ringworld is easily one of the genre's greatest stories of discovery and exploration. Recommended by the Sci-Fi and Fantasy Team, Powells.com
Synopses & Reviews
A new place is being built, a world of huge dimensions, encompassing millions of miles, stronger than any planet before it. There is gravity, and with high walls and its proximity to the sun, a livable new planet that is three million times the area of the Earth can be formed. We can start again!

An odd read. It is a classic, and it has some great ideas, but not much in the way of the plot. Rather, it has one of those 'let's go see and explore weird alien artifact/new planet/etc', so not much happens except for exploring. I can also see why people have problem with Niven's women characters...
