Format: Paperback
In 1981 I spent the best part of four months sitting on the beach at Laguna Beach, California reading / studying this book. That experience transformed my life and led me to begin working with the pattern integrity that was and is Bucky Fuller. Entering into the realm then led me to produce and present "lectures and seminars" to help other people appreciate the importance of that wisdom and to begin writing "translations" of his ideas for myself and others.
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.

Critical Path is a thorough investigation of the possibilities open to humanity if it reject national boarders and war. I does seem a little out-dated, written as it was in the 80's, but many of the issues that needed resolving then are still in dire need of resolution.

This is the single most powerful book I have ever read in my life so far! Bucky's thinking is brilliantly delivered in "Critical Path".
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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the central themes of this book is that technology is becoming ever more efficient
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 .
