The author sets up a ridiculous straw man, and attacks that rather than address any real issues. This is done through terrible prose, and horrible misogynistic views. While it is one of the first science fiction books to deal with cybernetics, it does so in such a ham-fisted way, that the book is best left forgotten.

I have vague, yet paradoxically clear memories of this book - about a society that has evolved believing in the value of amputation because then they can develop the strength of their upper bodies... a society at war.
