In this engaging, and relevant, chapter of Sixties history, Andrew G. Kirk examines the unique contributions of Stewart Brand and his WHOLE EARTH CATALOG, which enjoyed great popularity, and which greatly expanded people's minds about the environment and what could be done about it. In Kirk's analysis, the WHOLE EARTH CATALOG's importance lay in its practicality--it was a resource for information, products, and tools (a key word in the catalog) for those who wanted to get things done. It was also a joyous celebration of a new way of life as well as a new way of organizing knowledge. In many ways, it can be said to have foreshadowed the Internet. Kirk provides sketches of Stewart Brand and the many other "practical dreamers" who assembled the catalog, and he places it all in an enlightening historical and cultural context.
