about

Toward the end of his life, the visionary American philosopher, inventor, architect, mathematician, and poet Buckminster Fuller was asked to explain to a group of children his vision of how the universe works. The book that resulted from this encounter is not only the most straightforward exposition available of Bucky's radical worldview but also perhaps the most lovable and personal portrait ever produced of the man who has been called "the planet's friendly genius."

Fuller, who wrote more than thirty books, coined and popularized terms such as "spaceship earth" and "synergetics," and helped develop numerous design and architecture inventions, explains step-by-step the mysteries of the universe, with interruptions by the kids any time they could not follow him.

A brilliant portrait of a dynamic teacher, Fuller's Earth will be an inspiration to progressive educators today.


Richard J. Brenneman, an award-winning journalist, is a father of four. He lives in California, where he writes for the Berkeley Daily Planet.
