"No other book has had more long-lasting impact on my personal development than Frank Herbert's classic. Looking at it as a critique of religion, of politics, of the environment and of consumerism...its one of those amazing books thats multiple layers"
"This is one of those books that I don't find myself agreeing with the author's idea, but loving their approach to presenting it. Terence McKenna's explanations and arguments are highly entertaining and certainly thought-provoking."
