Publisher's Summary

First published in 1968, the year of international-student confrontation and revolution, this classic challenges listeners to choose which of two roads humankind ought to take: the one, leading to a completely mechanized society with the individual a helpless cog in a machine bent on mass destruction; or the second, being the path of humanism and hope.

©1968, 1970 Erich Fromm (P)2017 American Mental Health Foundation Inc.

Review

Bogart's voice is indeed soporific. i recommend it as a sedative to anyone who wishes to be put to sleep by Gandalf reading you philosophy.

Excellent book

The Narrator was so inept so bad that listening this great writing was insufferable. You should re-record it with someone who understands the material and has better diction.

Incredibly insightful, stands the rest of time.

It’s hard to believe that this book was written in the late 1960s. The attributes of the technological world it describes are truer today, and I’m not sure how he could have seen that so early. The ideas of fixing government, though not fully baked, are conceptually on a solid foundation. If you want to think deeply about the way human society organizes itself and the what the potential path towards sustained prosperity and happiness might look like, you must listen to this audiobook.
