I'm not a gardener, and I don't really care about the stories behind the plants and flowers. But this book managed to suck me into the history and presence of it. The first chapter on apple (and the legends of Johnny Appleseed) is simply enchanting.
I might even try other books by Michael Pollan now. He makes potentially dull subjects (dull to me, personally) into something exciting. Great writer, for sure.
