When it is compulsory to read something the true value is missed out, I 
think (had my own experience with Hungarian stuff :D). Besides, I read the 
book at the age of 17. And certainly in an age where I began to 'think out 
of the box'. I'd say this book and Animal Farm got me started... These two 
are among the basics for over-system global thinking, which is sometimes 
what I/we need (not every single day but often enough). By the way, who has 
seen the film?
