His Master-piece

Any additional comments?

This is by far the best book of Stanislaw Lem and to me the best SCI-FI book in general.
One can think of it as a anti-Contact from Carl Sagan. Although there is not much action here, Lem manages to tell an interesting story and push his ideas about how small and silly we people are in face of real problems and storyteller communication.
The book is hard to read (listen) but it leaves you with a seance of real discovery once you're done. Your views on humanity will not be the same ever again.
