"A fantastic racy narrative, full of much excellent satire and literary horseplay."
-- Forum Staff

"In this latest book, Huxley uses his erudite knowledge of human relations to compare our actual world with his prophetic fantasy of 1931. It is a frightening experience, indeed, to discover how much of his satirical prediction of a distant future became reality in so short a time...Brave New World Revisited is of the utmost importance for the knowledge of growing psychic pressures in a world of transition."
-- Joost A.M. Meerloo, The New York Times Book Review

"Brave New World Revisited" bears a message which, enforced by M. Huxley's seriousness and clear dialectic on dealing with social problems, we cannot ignore. His criticism has left behind the cynicism so characteristic of his earlier works. The last pages carry a somewhat tragic note about his misgivings whether man himself wishes to be saved." --Manuel De Braganca, Time and Tide (London)
