      As a long time Bucky fan, I was enthralled by the 2008 Whitney exhibition of Fuller's lifetime of work. Seeing the actual Dymaxion car and some of the housing models collected in one space really solidified his visionary genius for me. The book has served as a great resource and overview of this remarkable collection of Fuller's work.
