“A wake-up call to a world slumbering in the opium dream of consumerisum; in the hazy certainty that we humans were in charge of nature. Science fiction is not about predicting the future, it's about elucidating the present and the past. Brunner's 1968 nightmare is crystallizing around us, in ways he could not have foreseen then. If the right people had read this book, and acted in accordance with its precepts and spirit, our world would not be in such precarious shape today. Maybe it's time for a new generation to read it.” ―Joe Haldeman
“A quite marvelous projection in which John Brunner landscapes a future that seems the natural foster child of the present.” ―Kirkus Reviews
For a 43 year old book it he was very perceptive about the future. It has a more realistic view of the future than 1984.
