This primer basically serves as a 15 page summary of our 800+ page book which just came out. So for those of you who want the cliff notes version of Integral Ecology - here it is (but keep in mind that all the juicy endnotes - all 200 pages of them - are only in the book). Michael and Sean have intentionally removed any jargon and made this as accessible to a wide audience as possible.
