Shocked, fascinated - want more!

Today I finished reading the book Futurological Congress, by Stanislaw Lem. I'll say one thing - I'm pretty damn dissatisfied! For myself - because I read the book too quickly, and the author - the book is far too short. Creation of the world literally destroyed me. I have not read the book which affected me in that way. Presented a vision of the future of the world is entirely possible and, unfortunately, not optimistic. The basic question posed by the author, is "should we lie in the greater good? or should we know, and let other know all true, even if the true is worst that everywhing we can imagine". In my opinion YES, and what do you think?

PS: of course I recommend this book, with full force of power!

  5. Nice review, I personally think that hiding some truths from the masses can be a good thing.
    People's response to bad news can sometimes be worse than the bad news itself.
