Staff Reviews


"Education is no substitute for intelligence.

What do you despise? By this are you truly known.

Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens.

Give as few orders as possible... Once you've given orders on that subject, you must always give orders on that subject.

Repression makes a religion flourish.

Humans are almost always lonely.

The least favorable condition controls the growth rate.

An ecosystem maintains a certain fluid stability that can be destroyed by a misstep in just one niche.

You can't buy security."

This is an ecological text, one that can teach you not what to think, but how. Any other words I write about it are nothing compared to it, hastily exampled in the above quotes, which should be absorbed as they come in their own environment, and with much reflection.

Description


One of the preeminent books in science fiction, this classic has endured in the imaginations of readers for over thirty years. It tells the tale of the desert planet Arrakis, which produces the "spice" needed for interstellar navigators to ply their way. The Galactic Emperor has transferred custody of the planet to the House of Atreides from the House of Harkonnen. However, the evil House of Harkonnen has other plans, and casts the young Duke Paul Atreides out into the desert to die. There, Paul comes into contact with the Fremen, the indigenous inhabitants of the planet, who can help him regain his position. But Paul may be more than a Duke; he may be the end-point of a genetic breeding program designed to create a messiah.
