“I read it every few years and learn something new. It has been extremely important for my development as a person and how I see / interpret the world. The book covers religion, economics, drug use, ecology, environmentalism, humanity, fate, politics – the list goes on. This remains the gold standard by which I judge all other works of science fiction. “
