#### Review: Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking

User Review - Paul Lux - GoodreadsIncredibly technical, and i assume even most mathematicians would say that it is abstract. In this book, Bucky defines his vision in a very precise way. Definitely not an easy read, but THE book to read for any serious students of the Master himself. Read full review
