Description

Here, Buckminster Fuller takes on the gigantic corporate megaliths that exert increasing control over every aspect of daily life. In the form of a modern allegory, he traces the evolution of these multinational giants from the post-World War II military-industrial complex to the current army of abstract legal entities known as the corporate world. GRUNCH stands for Gross Universal Cash Heist.

when smart people speak it is best to listen

I'm a firm believer that anything whose message holds up over the course of time should be reread and shared, this is one of those books. A very distinguished life or a lot was done to positively impact the world that you live in today his thoughts are deep and a bit mind boggling but well worth engaging with

Nice text, unbearable listening

The book by itself seemed good. But the reading seems performed by a reading robot almost-impossible-to-cope-with-the-word-silence-word intonation!!!! very bad audio.

So many run-on sentences it’s hard to follow

Just waiting for the author to make his points is painful. The unnecessarily conjoined words also don’t help to communicate the ideas.

Too Complicated

This is a very hard read. Way too complicated for the average reader. This was highly regarded from a different author and has some good examples, but I feel like I need a PhD to understand it.

Great information, terrible intonation of reading

This was the hardest audiobook to follow primarily because of the mono-toned reading. There was very little inflection of the voice as if there is no punctuation. I did my best to just listen to the words but it was VERY painful.

EXCELLENT information!

The book was a little too technical for me, although I was intrigued with the information. That is why I was persistent in completing it.

Excellently written, concise view of the world today and yesterday

This book is a concise and to the point synopsis of R. Buckminster Fuller’s view and take regarding life on planet Earth. Andrew Heyl does a wonderful job of narrating a rather complexly written book - kudos Mr. Heyl.

Why Make It So Difficult To Understand??

If you want to awaken the masses to realize how corporations are taking advantage of them, at least make the verbiage understandable. It seems the author almost had to have gone out of his way to make this difficult to understand. I cannot fault the narrator (although his monotone voice adds to the problem) because the words are so difficult. Overall, I think the message is good but this would be a book that could have changed the world if it was understandable.

beyond imagination

Buckminster Fuller challenges us.
he shows us that we can make it.
however, we are not ready yet.
the fight between good and evil powers is still ongoing.
that is the bottom line.
