The Age of the Pussyfoot - Fred Pohl
This book was waaaaay ahead of its time. A wonderful short novel from the 1960's that is still a great read. Pohl pretty consistently produces good books. 'Black Star Rising', 'The World at the End of Time', the Gateway series (although hardly obscure) and a whole lot of others.

Riddley Walker - Russell Hoban
A post-apocalyptic novel. Excellent. Would help to have some local knowledge of English culture.

Dying Inside - Robert Silverberg
This book does not get enough recognition.

The Lilith's Brood series - Octavia Butler
Three novels about the integration of the human race by aliens after a nuclear war. Marvelous.

Actually what I was trying to point out is that success does not have to be measured against how you compete against someone else or how much money beyond what the company needs you end up with. It's not a dog-eat-dog world. The world is just what we make of it.
