INTP = "The Thinker" =Traits: Abstract, rational, ingenious, independent ~~~ Book: This type is the most likely to enjoy reading up on philosophy, as they think very abstractly (see: Mr. Ramsay from "To the Lighthouse"). Huxley's blend of scientific insights and social commentary in the classic book, "Brave New World" would probably appeal to them.
During one of those turbulent years, 1939, author Michael Chabon introduces us to the eponymous Jewish cousins as they create their own superhero, The Escapist. And, in doing do, Chabon creates a moving (in terms of pace and emotion) tribute to the creators of fantasy champions.
