Indispensable. Anyone who takes the time to absorb Korzybski will never listen to language the same way. The book is dense, the prose a bit turgid (AK was Polish and English was his fifth language), but Science and Sanity has been for decades on the list of top ten non-fiction books that have influenced me deeply.

A sometimes confusing theory for me, General Semantics, has so much to offer how our language impact our thinking and our society.
