About this Item

This is the 1st edition/1st printing of Crichton's novel concerning scientific modification of the human brain and the problems that could ensue in a worst-case scenario of "computerized guinea pig gone wrong". The book is in near fine condition with just a bit of bumping to the spine ends and the dust jacket is very good (plus) with a light discoloration/line about 1" from the bottom of the rear panel, otherwise it would also be near fine.

Synopsis:

Harry Benson suffers from violent seizures -- so violent that he requires a police guard when entering a Los Angeles hospital for treatment.

Dr. Roger MacPherson, head of the prestigious Neuropsychiatric Research Unit, is convinced he can cure Benson through a procedure known as a stage three. During this highly specialized surgery, electrodes, placed deep in Benson's brain, Send monitored soothing pulses to its pleasure canyons.

The operation is a success -- until Benson discovers how to get the pulses with increasing frequency. Then he escapes from the hospital and lapses into murderous rampages, becoming a homicidal maniac with a deadly agenda....
