Should be a requirement in schools

This was an excellent read that demonstrates, even in this age, how advanced Aldous Huxley was for his time. The social and political presentations show the realistic side of human nature as well as the consequences. Even his critiques of his own work in "Revisited" were inspiring and he didn't hesitate to reveal some of the mistakes he made in his original writing - from his point of view, of course. A truely frightening reality of human nature.

interesting book

provacative book. Huxley was way before his time. His concepts of eugenics and hypnopaedia were as frightfully prophetic as they were original. A classic that must be read by all.
