Burrhus Frederic Skinner (1904-1990), regarded by many as the most important and influential psychologist since Freud, earned his doctorate in psychology at Harvard University in 1931. Following appointments at the University of Minnesota and Indiana University, he returned to Harvard in 1948. He remained there for the rest of his career, retiring in 1974 as Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology.

One of the best novels I have ever read--if not the best. This novel changed my outlook on the world and on my life. After my skepticism diminished, I became increasingly jealous of Skinner's utopia and wondered why we could not build one just like it in today's world. Thus, Skinner's message succeeded in converting me.
