Praise for the previous edition:

In order to acquaint a new generation with Fuller, his former architectural partner, Zung, gathers selections [from Fullers writings] on topics ranging from education and environment to engineering and the Lords Prayer. Admirers of Fullersuch as actress Valerie Harper, author Arthur C. Clarke, and entrepreneur Steve Forbesintroduce each selection. Zungs anthology traces the development of Fullers intellectual life and provides an excellent introduction for a new generation to the life and work of this brilliant thinker.Publishers Weekly

Stimulating and provocative. . . . Like a Francis Bacon charting the course for future generations to pursue, Fuller anticipates the need for the comprehensive designer, who would be a synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist, and evolutionary strategist. Such a [person], he says, would be an initiator of design, able to anticipate all of mans needs and provide new and advanced standards of living for a steadily increasing percentage of the worlds population.Chicago Tribune
