Think Like a Mountain has Concrete fall in with a group of Earth First! enviromental activists in their attempt to save an old growth forest from logging. One of the strengths of this book is that Chadwick doesn't try to sway our opinions with common narrative tricks: the loggers aren't evil and the enviromentalists aren't saints in the least. Chadwick wants to win us over with facts and facts alone. This trade collects Concrete: Think Like a Mountain issues and numerous shorter stories from various anthology comics. The main story here doesn't depend on previous events nor characters (except Concrete).

Concrete, Volume 5 book. Think Like A Mountain is Chadwick's environmental dissertation, as Concrete gets involved in the eco-war. Being a celebrity has its benefits. I wish I were more involved in this cause myself, but I appreciate that Chadwick took time to make the Earth First!ers fully fleshed out people, including their flaws.

Celebrity has its benefits... and its costs. Due to his status as the world's most unusual travel writer - being a thousand pounds of walking, talking rock will do that - Concrete is approached by a group of radical eco-warriors to see firsthand and write about their efforts to save old-growth forest. What begins as a lark soon turns into a harrowing struggle, and Concrete must decide whether to dispassionately observe or to join these people who would risk anything, even life itself, to save the planet. Called "the best comic being published by anyone, anywhere," Paul Chadwick's critically acclaimed Concrete is at once rousing fantasy and grounded reality, as thought-provoking and challenging as it is entertaining. Think Like a Mountain collects the 1996 Parents' Choice Award winning series along with bonus short stories, some collected here for the first time.

This is the most well regarded (and well known) of the Concrete stories, even by Chadwick himself.

Think Like a Mountain has Concrete fall in with a group of Earth First! enviromental activists in their attempt to save an old growth forest from logging. One of the strengths of this book is that Chadwick doesn't try to sway our opinions with common narrative tricks: the loggers aren't evil and the enviromentalists aren't saints in the least. Chadwick wants to win us over with facts and facts alone. As always Concrete, the thinking man's superhero, approaches the problem with, well, lots of thought; specifically on whether we should leave things to the slow route of diplomacy or we should take matters into our own hands for something we think is right - even if it means breaking some laws.

DO NOT order. Kindle on Mac does not let you zoom in and this book the font of the writing is point 4. Impossible to read. Highly unhappy with what I paid for basically got ripped off 8$ by amazon.

Best graphic novel I've read. Beautiful illustrations to match a great story. I would recommend this for any comic lover/ nature lover.

This trade collects Concrete: Think Like a Mountain issues #1-6 and numerous shorter stories from various anthology comics.

The main story here doesn't depend on previous events nor characters (except Concrete). The first four volumes add a little depth but aren't prerequisites.

An extremist environmental group asks Concrete to help their protests against deforestation and to protect an ancient forest. He agrees only to travel with them and anonymously chronicle their struggle, but they hope to sway him into a more active role.

Think Like a Mountain is one of the most well-known and praised Concrete stories, and with good reason. It's researched in amazing detail, carefully plotted, and attempts an even handed presentation of both sides of the conflict. Both the loggers and the environmentalists have faults, and reasons behind their actions.

Where it falls apart a bit for me is that the story isn't nearly as objective or fair as it tries to be. The author has chosen a side, and it seeps into little details that bias the narrative. I'm not saying it was wrong to do so - Chadwick has every right to put a message into his writing. But the lesson would have been even more persuasive if this had been as balanced as it appears and allowed the reader to draw their own conclusions and of using Concrete as an impartial guide all the way through. Instead one side's questionable actions are motivated by selflessness and righteousness, and the other's by fear and greed. And our "impartial" narrator eventually decides one side is justified in the lengths they are willing to go.

Again, Chadwick delivers a powerful, important message here none-the-less, but as is becoming a running theme with me and this comic I feel it had significantly more potential than was reached.

The short stories are the weakest I've read so far. Nothing bad but nothing that stands out either and the themes are getting repetitive.

The longer Concrete goes on the less interested I'm becoming with the direction it's taken. Still, for all my criticisms and laments about what could have been, the titular story is still an extremely strong look at an important world issue and well worth reading for yourself.

Paul is flawless in his execution of the thought-provoking life of Concrete. He weaves his tale and makes you always think about the life you lead. The best stories are the ones that stay with you and cause you to think time and again.

This is no exception.
