    "I hear that this is a decent book that would help me see eye to eye with some libertarian views but unfortunately, I believe I received one of the bad batch of these that went out. My copy was unreadable due to a printing error. From what I was able to read, it was rather insightful."

    "Before there was ‘The Matrix’ and ‘Bladerunner’, before there was even ‘1984’, there was Brave New World. It is astonishing that Aldous Huxley wrote this tale of technological dystopia in 1932."
