This is different from Crichton's other books, but still is a gripping plot. This book is a look at what might happen when doctors start trying to change parts of the mind physically. Excellent book!

Good Medical Thriller. Even though it is 1971 in the book, the theory that is played out is intriguing. Man with brain disorder that causes violent outbursts, has computer implanted in his brain to prevent the outbursts by stimulating pleasure areas. Only he gets hooked on the feeling and excapes from the hospital.
