    Arguably The Greatest Book of the 20th Century

    Personally, I can't think of anything that has affected me more than Korzybski's text, with the possible exception of the movie, 'Swedish Fly Girls.' A dazzling display of knowledge is Science & Sanity -- a great synthesis of learning -- an achievement comparable in some ways to that of Aristotle. It's a book that affected Alvin Toffler for one, Margaret Mead, Buckminster Fuller, Abraham Maslow and so on. I'll just quote a few of the influential people who liked this book on its publication in 1933. E.T. Bell, the noted mathematician, from the California Institute of Technology: 'I think it is obvious that Korzybski is working in a direction of the highest present importance for science and life.' Russell Meyers, the noted neurologist: 'The most profound, insightful, and globally significant book I have ever read.' Cora L. Williams, mathematician, President of Williams Institute, Berkeley, California: 'What Eistein has done for the outer realm of our being, Korzybski is doing for our inner realm.' C. Judson Herrick, Professor of Neurology, University of Chicago: 'Count Korzybski . . . presents a plan for radical revamping of our theory and practice that seems worthy of further trial in a wide variety of fields. . . [it] points the way toward personal and social sanity -- a way that I believe is fundamentally correct and practicable.'
