simple. informative. supportive.
Narcotics anonymous in a nutshell... introduction.
Who is an addict.
Spiritual (not religious) experience in identifying with recovery from addiction.
Though I am often most enthusiast about the latest reads, I read this book last summer while I was gardening/landscaping... twice. So, it is right up there on the top of the heap. Thanks Michael Pollen.
The format. Each section is a book in itself: Tulips, potatoes, apple trees... it is all so very interesting. The way human-kind has affected how what plants grow where - it literally pertains to you/me personally and gives you pause (and concern) about the future of our planet and food of today/tomorrow.
Though a long read. Scott Brick manages to keep up the pace and deliver a great performance.
Michael Pollan gives us 'food for thought' about genetically modified foods, a humorous account on America's history with marijuana, and a valuable lesson from tulips.
Michael Pollen has managed to write an interesting and entertaining historical account of the plants/foods we all take for granted. Must read. Even if you think you are not a botanist at heart... you will be with this book.
