The latin quote in the front was enough to make this book buyable. This book is one of the best modern philosophy works I've ever read. Even if I didn't agree with his view (which was rare), I fully agreed with his reasoning and research. His views on sexuality (the repression of knowledge and creation of a sexually taboo society is what causes overpopulation and disease) are exactly what I believe and have been fighting for a long time. EVERYBODY should at least take a look at a chapter or two, since most are only a few pages long. I think that's what makes this book great as opposed to good; the way he makes short, plausible chapters on different philosophical ideas is a perfect method for someone with a crappy attention span.
