Excerpt of Max Hodann book concerning Huxley

In Aldous Huxley´s Brave New World, a wide and precise knowldege of cytology, endocrinology and the results of experimental surgery has been woven into a fascinating pattern, with streaks of rich comedy against a sinister background; for Huxly “gives damnably to think” of what may be the results of our biological indiscretions and reckless experimentations, but his novel has presented facts and ideas to circles unwilling to receive the minute statistics and cautious records of the typical scientific monograph.
