Both astonishing and prophetic, The Abolition of Man remains one of C. S. Lewis's most controversial works. Lewis sets out to persuade his audience of the ongoing importance and relevance of universal objective values, such as courage and honor, and the foundational necessity of natural law. He also makes a cogent case that a retreat from these pillars of our educational system, even if in the name of "scientism", would be catastrophic. National Review lists it as number seven on their "100 Best Nonfiction Books of the 20th Century".

This packs power.
Lewis is a bonafide, truth seeking intellect assessing with clarity where we stand today in our human condition.
That is, concerning mankind in it's quest for control in the march through history.
It is intellectual, a full attention read, and I advise for the average man as myself, a follow up read as a must to really lock it in.
Read it and gain wisdom of understanding.
Very well read and quality production. TRUTH
CS Lewis gets to the heart of several issues afflicting modern society. Between subtle indoctrination in school curricula to the dangers of microagressiins, he eloquently points out the dangers and the practices quite simple and clear terms.
yet i detest sitting. This audio book is true truth on my opinion. I'd recommend this book to anyone seeking wisdom.
