isbn: 9780007181575 is an orwell prize listee, it also suffers from saint sigmund freud disease. Wilhelm Reich being a johnny come lately to the Austrian ‘science; that is Freudian, Although there’s more of the saint than herr Reich in the early chapters.
As to Reich, a book judging his views on sex, the marketing of a health box, and the foray into advertising all seems open to misjudgement. To be honest i got bored with this very quickly and failed to finish this book as jew,marxism and nazism bingo words got added into the tale made me think is the author taking a didion line.
As to an orgasmatron, well that anarchy school with no lessons in Norfolk in England had one, but the perception of a nearby nuclear power plant seems to have stopped it working and that was the end of the quest of the orgasmatron on page 14 and then the saint sigmund crap that probably is in all books about brain theory about him become page filler.
Since im off topic along with the writer of this junk there was a film about the nice brain doctors that i thought looked good, but oddly it never got a release, or i missed the one performance of it. Then again apparently we are all defective according to mental doctors, see if i am crazy so are you.
Anyhow there’s a monkey trying to mate with me here in the zoo right now and that’s way more fun. So 0/0 ids for the book.
Reich might have been alive for the flower power 1960′s thingy and be called a guru but if the author insists on hero worship of sigmund freud rather than focusing on Reich whom appears to be a man with a product rather than a theory which the author really wants to do then thats not my problem*.
Now i have a monkey to deal with. Oook Oook
