Peace on EarthPeace on Earth by Stanisław Lem
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I consider this classic "spear-the-pig" SF even if it was pubbed in '86. It's by the inestimable Stanislaw Lem, though, so it's sharp enough to spear all of us. Great and funny commentary on the arms race, weapons escalation, nanotechnology, AI's, and even that tenuous (but oddly consistent) connection between mental health and the rich.

Fear is, indeed, a creature with huge eyes and a small brain. :)

This was a delightful, light, and astute novel. Lem is seriously smart.
