    "And amazing satire of current day earth"

    I would highly recommend this audio book to anyone who enjoys political and cultural satire. I would rank this right up there with Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift (although many people mistake it for a children's story rather than cultural satire - the same will likely be true with this book).

    I found myself often laughing out loud and nodding my head sadly as Hubbard pokes fun at many of our strange foibles. It is rather remarkable that this book was written so many years ago, as many of the tendencies he points out still manifest themselves today. Most notably, the use of PR and the press have become, if anything, more outrageous than they were 30 years ago. Years after this book made that clear, I watched Michael Jackson hounded literally to death by those very tools.

    This is the book for anyone who wants to learn what is really going on in our culture today and can enjoy laughing about it at the same time. If you don't have a good sense of humor, don't bother - you won't get it.

    "Books better"

    After reading the books, listening to this abridged version, they don't compare . Too much left out to get the full feel of the story. Read the books see the difference.
