Buckminster Fuller, obviously, is a very intelligent person. His engineering and creativity throughout his life was amazing.
Unfortunately, like Marshall McLuhan he has a need to use very long words when short, simple words would be better. This makes reading the book harder (and much longer). Being an academic I often find this with doctoral students -- they are insecure and think big words will make them appear smarter; It doesn't work.
Maybe I just miss Ernest Hemingway!
