I would love a complete kindle-set of Huxley's essays. I'd LOVE it. But, volume 1 at this price ... it's just too darn expensive.

I think I'll go chew on a soma tablet to mellow me out.

Aldous Huxley Review 5 Feb 2013
By R. Blenderman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a must have for anyone even vaguely interested in comments and essays from the most brilliant minds of the 20th century. Aldous Huxley is definitely at the top of this list. His interests and essays span all aspects of human nature, politics, sociology, films, politics and the list goes on. You have to get past the stigma which normal critics have placed on his work and (like Tesla) actually read his works with an open and nonjudgmental mind. His views will challenge your perception of the everyday world we live in and the influences which are pushed at us from every aspect of mass media. Huxley had quite a variety of views so I would suggest to anyone to read his works. Most readers too easily discard his works after reading only one article or two. Anyone interested in Human Nature will find his works beneficial.
