5.0 out of 5 stars A book every intelligent person should read, 29 Mar 2013

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: LAST AND FIRST MEN (Paperback)
I came across this book by accident when someone on Radio 4 was extolling its virtues. Firstly, this is not an easy holiday read. The language is intense and complex. Persevere. Secondly, it is wildly inaccurate as foretelling the future. However, the themes are disturbingly real. He sees man (as we know him) as yet to evolve - still with an animal-based nervous system that is unable to reach beyond the pack/the tribe and destructive emotions. He also describes national and international conflicts that are close to the truth in theme rather than fact. I will not say any more. READ IT!
