QuotationI am about halfway through The Sane Society which I received some time ago. I am reading it with the greatest interest and profit, and taking my time, for I believe it to be your very best book. I thank you for having written it and for having been so kind as to send me an inscribed copy. Once again I would like to tell you how closely I agree with your main conclusions, that I have read so far, and especially with your admirable analysis of man in our present society.
