Rethinks all and projects amazing ideas into the future.

This book and Moby Dick are the only two I can read cover to cover over and over.

The concepts explored in each chapter (or plateau) are interlinked, but their sequence as printed in the book is just one of many possible sequences. Every time I come back to this book, I find myself going through it in a different order.

A deeply visionary book to be read with attention to its introduction, “Rhizome,” and in conjunction with its companion volume, Anti-Oedipus. A precursor to a lot of the later digital network thinking. I feel like I never fully understood these books. But they have always inspired and intrigued me.

Fabian, my husband, bought this book in 1988, on a trip back to Argentina. I remember reading Anti-Oedipus (volume 1 of Capitalism and Schizophrenia, 1972) numerous times together—and this is the book that I envision fighting over if we ever consider divorce!
