The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World

The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World - Michael Pollan Pollan... heheh, surely that can't be a coincidence... anyway Pollan covers four plants: apples, tulips, cannabis, and potatoes. Apples covers Johnny Appleseed and Kazakhstan, tulips the Dutch tulip bubble; cannabis; potatoes

end result:
apples 5/5
tulips 4/5
cannabis 5/5
potatoes 3/5
average: 4。25

nice, impressively tight prose. potatoes w/ terminator genes by archer david midland is already covered by web media/news, but otherwise this is a fast, tight read
