Book Overview

An introduction to the nonfascist life (Michel Foucault, from the Preface)

When it first appeared in France, Anti-Oedipus was hailed as a masterpiece by some and a work of heretical madness by others. In it, Gilles Deleuze and F lix Guattari set forth the following theory: Western society's innate herd instinct has allowed the government, the media, and even the principles of economics to take advantage of each person's unwillingness to be cut off from the group. What's more, those who suffer from mental disorders may not be insane, but could be individuals in the purest sense, because they are by nature isolated from society. More than twenty-five years after its original publication, Anti-Oedipus still stands as a controversial contribution to a much-needed dialogue on the nature of free thinking.

   I am only half way through this book, and ...
Only halfway through the book, I am very impressed. The real is not impossible, Raymond said. Within the real, everything becomes possible, he said. It is not necessary to express a lack of teeth within the subject. The molar organization deprives itself of that desire.
   I desire to read it again...... and will.
I have no doubt that Raymond's work will stand in the pantheon of great American fiction. The book is about a desire and its flow, cosmically, socially, culturally, and economically, humanly. It includes elements of economics or psychoanalytic concepts as models, territories and flows thereof, as tools to bounce their ideas off of which they can view the extremely abstract nature of the subunconscious and their theory of desire, if you prefer. This book will change the way you think about the world — and agree or disagree with its thesis or commentaries, any book that does that deserves five full stars.
   It's deep, maybe the deepest thing I've ever read.
It's just that difficult to follow. This is one vicious game of Russian roulette.
   Great book and of course I like the standard Kindle ...
Great book and of course I like the standard Kindle features but the page formatting and absurd lack of proof reading is a real disappointment _ as an indicator in the introduction you get jeff-preservation instead of self-preservation."
   Got what I ordered
Brand new book in great condition, said Ragin. It's hard to read, but it's also very interesting.
   Penguin Books and other publishers - can you please stop printing on a toilet paper?
Ordered a brand new and received one in a not very good condition, but that's not the issue, said Mr. O'Neill. Recently I gifted The Man Without Qualities by Robert Musil to a friend, the same story, ordered online and eventually it was printed on a toilet paper as well. Penguin Books, PICADOR Classics, etcetera, can you please stop publishing these important works on a toilet paper? That said, I still think it's great to show some respect. Cheers to Giga.
