    1. Throw the contents of a famous engineer's brain at a small paperback, and let the contents fall how they will: upside down, bizarrely set, unified by a single line of coherent thought running through pages of quotes, photography, and commentary. Gradually the reader perceives what the past and future must look like to the author - a breathtaking acceleration and transformative flowering of human potential - but instead of explicitly telling us its perspective, the book requires us to slowly back [...]


    2. we do all too often think of ourselves as nouns, as something fixed and permanent, rather than a system that is constantly in motion, as in blood flowing, nerve impulses shooting around, mind constantly thinking, a form of motion.This book is a wonderful way to introduce the reader to thinking about themselves as something in motion rather than something static.Perhaps most important is that this is the first e-book, even though it is not available that way, only as printed books. The combinatio [...]


    3. A perfectly charming, cute, naive, cranky collage of jokes, clever insights, utopian plans, and futuristic predictions about technology and society. It's wacky enough that it doesn't need to take its message too seriously, but interesting enough to get you flipping pages. Unique.




    4. One of the most unique and thought provoking books, I have ever read. The whole time reading, I thought about the Mark Twain quote “History doesn't repeat itself but it often rhymes.”


    5. The experience of reading the snippets and viewing the photos that comprise this careful design — reading front to back, then back to front upside down — is like hurtling through space and time. Then you get to read the ticker-tape marching across the middle of each page like a continuous ribbon of text, which acts as a sort of summary as you see glimpses of all the same ideas again, but faster. There are some great juxtapositions between the two halves, too, that become apparent when viewin [...]


    6. Impressive given it was written in the late 1960's. Demonstrates how visionary Buckminster Fuller was as well as how much we've been debating/worrying/solving the same problems, issues, concerns for 100s of years.








    7. One of the best books I've ever read, and one of the most fun and interesting. Not many books can get me to read them front to back right side up, back to front upside down twice.



    8. I absolutely love this book! Its so creatively put together, it appealed first to me as a graphic designer, secondly as social commentary.
