Riassunto: Here is what Bennett himself said about this book: t has never struck you that you possess a machine? That machine is yourself. You are the most fascinating bit of machinery that ever was. Considering that we have to spend the whole of our lives in this human machine, considering that it is our sole means of contact and compromise with the rest of the world, we really do devote to it very little attention. When I say 'we,' I mean our inmost spirits, the instinctive part, the mystery within that exists. And when I say 'the human machine' I mean the brain and the body - and chiefly the brain. Two reviews from Amazon.com - "This small text has more common sense packed in it than most epics. After reading this for the second time, I was amazed at how simple the premises are. I would recommend this to anyone who may be in search of enlightenment or just simply searching for a good read." "The Human Machine contains all that stuff which a person needs to know to have smooth relations with his peers and superiors. That is to say it deals with your self!!! The author teaches you in a persuasive manner how to get along with people in todays' world and thereby avoid many of the tensions/worries which you may have to face otherwise. The book is certainly worth buying. "
L'autore: Arnold Bennett was born in England in 1867. He published many works of both fiction and non-fiction and was quite well known in his day. During the First World War he became Director of Propaganda for France at the Ministry of Information. In 1922, he separated from his wife and fell in love with actress Dorothy Cheston, with whom he stayed for the rest of his life. He died of typhoid at his home in Baker Street, London, on 27 March 1931, after returning from a visit to France. The Human Machine is one of Bennett's works of non-fiction based on the premise that times change bu human psychology remains same. Many people consider this book, first published in 1925 to be the precursor to Napoleon Hill's famous book entitled Think and Grow Rich.
