Nine Chains to the Moon by R. Buckminster Fuller $34
In Nine Chains to the Moon, R. Buckminster Fuller takes up his own challenge and brilliantly displays the unique daring of his ideas. In the course of his analysis he makes us question our commonly accepted notions of Euclidian geometry, "good" architecture, classical solutions to economic problems, and even our use of words. Fuller chose the title of the book "to encourage and stimulate the broadest attitude toward thought...If, in imagination, all of the people of the world were to stand upon one another's shoulders, they would make nine complete chains between the earth and the moon. If it is not so far to the moon, then it is not so far to the limits, whatever—whenever or wherever they may be."
