Dune series by Herbert also brilliant. He advocates placing limits on machine intelligence.      source
As a teenager, I was a total Dune fanatic; my friends and I used to have mock knife fights where the killing blow had to be delivered slowly to get through the other guy's personal shield, which means a lot if you've read the book 2/      source
When I got this book out of the library at age 12, my father remarked, It's sinful that so large a book should be devoted to science fiction. Little was he to know that this book, full of wonderful concepts about how to come to grips with a world out of our control, would play so large a role in his son's life. After I graduated from college, a friend who was editing a series of critical monographs about science fiction asked me if I'd like to write a book about Frank Herbert. I agreed, and it was that choice that set me on the path to becoming a writer. In the course of writing the book, I got far deeper into Herbert's ideas than I had reading his books growing up. The core message of all Herbert's work is that we can't control the future, but we can control our response to it, surfing the edge of change and risk.      source
Perhaps the most incredibly detailed and oddly believable fictional landscape I’ve ever encountered.      source

Nonfiction narrative, let’s see. Hmm. I’m a big science-fiction fan. I love Dune. That’s not a nonfiction narrative, of course, but it would be cool if it was!      source
If you read Dune, and you don’t read it for the plot but you read it for understanding geopolitics, suddenly something clicks in your head.      source
