One of the best science fiction books ever written. About a guy who is able to read other people's minds. His whole life, he's had this gift, and in some ways it's made life easier for him, in some ways harder. He finds himself in middle age and the gift is slowly disappearing and he's lost without it. This is 'Catcher in the Rye' for middle aged men. I wish I could give it 6 stars. A timeless classic that will be read forever.
