Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Known as a “Leonardo da Vinci of the twentieth century,” engineer, designer, inventor, and futurist Dr. R. Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller had a keen awareness that were all in this together. Understanding that humans dont have a

clue about how to operate our fragile Spaceship Earth, Buckminster provided insightful design science solutions to our most challenging issues, including war, overpopulation, housing, increasing inflation, health care, the energy crisis, and much more. For all its genius, Fullers legacy has yet to be fully discovered. Noted Fuller expert L. Steven Sieden together with Gary Zukav, John Robbins, Lynne Twist, Jean Houston, and many other notable individuals offer inspiring quotations and explanations that make Fuller's life more understandable and accessible. They preserve a voice that calls upon each of us to shift our intellectual and technological resources from creating weaponry to creating sustainability.

— Bucky Fuller

Known as a “Leonardo da Vinci of the twentieth century,” engineer, designer, inventor, and futurist Dr. R. Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller had a keen awareness that we’re all in this together. Understanding that we humans don’t have a clue about how to operate our fragile Spaceship Earth, Buckminster provided insightful design science solutions to our most challenging issues, including war, overpopulation, housing, increasing inflation, health care, the energy crisis, and much more. For all its genius, Fuller’s legacy has yet to be fully discovered. The world needs to hear Buckminster’s voice as it calls upon each of us to shift our intellectual and technological resources from creating weaponry to creating livingry.
