The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Brave New World - Aldous Huxley - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Brave New World:

In the future, relationships are nothing, but your meds are free.

My favorite Aldous Huxley quote from the book:

"One believes things become one has been conditioned to believe things."

Questions I pondered while reading Brave New World:

Why can't truth and happiness co-exist?

Is it wise to allow technology to replace the spiritual?

My thoughts about Brave New World:

Despite its outlandishness, the story makes a good suggestion as to our appearance after we give up our humanity.

It isn't pretty.

(but there are plenty of drugs)
