I read this as a teenager & never have forgotten it; it's an all-time classic. A great read if you can find a copy (check [...], which of course would make it a 'listen' rather than a read).
And damned if it isn't coming true.
The writing style is sharp and concentrated, and the storyline is definitely not politically correct, but it is a uproarious read. Considering this was written in 1951, Kornbluth showed great foresight or perhaps it was his bitter misanthropy that led him to pen this novelette. You will notice several phrases and concepts that have been borrowed by modern screenwriters and authors (Douglas Adams - if you weren't dead, I'd be looking at you). An average reader could probably knock this story off in a few hours. I would suggest you read the story first and then read the brilliant Foreword by Barry Malzberg.
Overall - a mini classic. I'd give it six stars if I could.
