This is the first edition of the book that changed my life.
It's not something much you’d much enjoy reading now, and nor would I. It's preachy, repetitive and by this time an expression of the blindingly obvious. But when it came out in 1963 its message was literally liberating. It would take more than one book to change the course of history,but I think it would be fair to say that it speeded up the revolution.
