Summary :

Reality is a dream. George Orr is the dreamer. George's dreams come true. George can change the world. In the hands of a power-mad psychiatrist George is forced to dream up a new reality, free from war, disease and overpopulation. But there are terrifying side-effects, and George must dream and dream again, forever seeking utopia, until the fabric of existence must itself collapse. Here is a gripping, human picture of a man given total power. In his actions we see ourselves. His decisions are the same that face our society today.
