Those writings eventually became the book Buckminster Fuller's Universe - an easily accessible translation of some of his ideas as well as a guide to understanding how his life affected the development of his famous operating strategy. Much of that operating strategy (for both humankind and each of us as individuals) is laid out in this book.
Spend time with this book. Spend time with Bucky. He was wise enough to make available all that he learned during his fifty-six year personal experiment to determine what one individual could do on behalf of all humankind that could not be achieved by any organization no matter how powerful.
Critical Path is but one of the artifacts he left for our enlightenment, and, in my opinion, it is the most accessible of Bucky's writing. It is not an easy read, but it is well worth the effort. I can personally attest to that fact that understanding and employing the wisdom that Bucky uncovered and shared has the power to make enormous shifts in people's lives as well as the welfare of the crew of the planet he named Spaceship Earth.
I recommend this book to the highest degree possible. I think everyone onboard "Spaceship Earth" should take the time to read this amazing work before it's too late.
Our life support systems can do the same job with ever less energy ,materials ,time .
Houses ,heating , energy, transport can all become far more efficient and a better standard of life available to all people .
The strange thing is that Mr fuller did not apply this to his writing , this book could easily have been reduced by half in length.
Language is a tool and though it can be admirable finding a different way of ordering words ,as in poetry for example , it serves no purpose here
THis unfortunately makes his writing less accessible , which is a pity as he had interesting ideas .
This rambling book is fairly dated , a lot of his observations are common understanding now but if you are prepared to wade through it
there are moments where you come across ideas and think yes the world would be a lot nicer like that .

A testimony to the genius of this man. His style of writing is a little dense in places, but well worth reading.Published 10 months ago by L. S. Harvey-frank
