The Sunday NY Times has a review of the second recent book about Stewart Brand: Counterculture Green.

Kirk’s book uses the genesis and evolution of Whole Earth as an opportunity to survey the sea change in environmental and design attitudes that emerged in the 1960s counterculture but, he notes emphatically, eventually outgrew it.

  • And while the book vividly documents his role in “the creation of the American counterculture, the birth of the personal computer, the rise of rock and roll, the back-to-the-land and commune movement, the environmental movement, and a critical reorientation of Western politics,” it doesn’t say what he eats for breakfast.

    Stewart, you gave a favorable Amazon review to From Counterculture to Cyberculture, and I enjoyed it very much. What is your opinion of this one? Also, what do you eat for breakfast? :-)
