The Demolished Man

The Demolished Man - Alfred Bester This kid has some real issues, not least the fact that someone else is being a bit more successful than he is. So obviously he had to murder him, because hard work is just too much like hard work. But oh WAIT. Not only is murder illegal, it's also impossible because the police can read minds. But that's okay because his psychotic ancestors (who have him his pathetic, weedy spoilt brat DNA) wrote a dossier on how to kill someone without the "peepers" (actual name) finding out. And like all /good/ ancient sci-fi that's won awards, it has zero women who aren't trying to fuck whichever loser is the protagonist. Ey. Great stuff.
