by Thomas T.K.Zung
Buckminster Fuller, inventor, thinker and architect, was one of the best known Americans of the 20th Century. Often compared to Leonardo da Vinci, Bucky Fuller was one of the most original thinkers and builders that America has ever produced. He was the inventor of the geodesic dome, the man who coined the term "spaceship earth," and an educator without parallel. His longtime friend and architectural partner Thomas Zung has compiled a Bucky Fuller reader- an anthology - each chapter written by such notables as Arthur C. Clarke, Steve Forbes, Calvin Tomkins, Dr. Martin Meyerson, Sir Harry Kroto, Arthur L. Loeb, Ed Applewhite, and others. Altogether, this book provides an overview of a remarkable intellectual career and the best possible introduction to the man and his thought.
