    I love reading RAW, and this is one of my favorite books of his. The format of the interlocking mini-essays which build upon each other is pulled together so well here.

    After reading the first Cosmic Trigger book all about aliens from Sirius, Nicola Tesla’s Colorado experiments and similarly far-out anecdotes, this volume, aptly titled ‘Down to Earth’ was way more my speed. Focussed on similarly strange historical moments or people, but who’s own work took them to a far less cosmic scope and instead dealt with Earthly matters. In this volume, RAW explores James Joyce’s wordplay, Joseph Campbell’s theory of the monomyth, and Buckminster Fuller’s life’s work toward his own utopian vision. Wilson manages to pull together seemingly unrelated talks from his personal favorite thinkers and create a cohesive book by the end that finds intersectionality between all the factors it brings together.
