Recommended to Norman by: Buckminster Fuller Institute
This book was first published in December 1962 when I was 16 and doing 'O' level studies at a comprehensive school in Wolverhampton. However, I did not read it until August 1996 when I was 49 and doing doctoral studies at the OU.

Why did a book I had not read change me?

Briefly, because, in August 1967, when I was studying architecture, I received a copy of Cedric Price's Potteries Thinkbelt study, but something I did not know then was that it was a response to the challenge originated by Buckmins

This is my second of many of Fuller's books I'll be reading. I continue to be impressed at his vision, and what he was able to articulate in the early sixties regarding education and technology is notable. He was optimistic in his timelines, and that much of what he envisioned took longer to be realized.

A rambling but lucid presentation to the folks creating SIU's new campus. Insightful on a broad range of education topics, including an appeal for more comprehensive anticipatory design folks.

Like most of Fullers books, it was a great read. He was a visionary, full of great ideas and concepts that turned out to be true before they were accepted as such.
