This is often referenced as being a key text, particularly in the USA. I recently tried to read it and found it an obscure fog of impenetrable language, half baked ideas and home-spun naivety.
Presumably I am missing something, but to me it was totally meaningless and far from turning me on to green or ecological ideas I would, if this was the first green text I read, be more put off and inclined to condemn the whole eco-green project as irrelevant to modern days.
I'd like to hear from someone who considers this a great or seminal book exactly why we should view it so...
