    This book offers practical help for anyone struggling with drug use problems. It does not go into the physiological causes of addiction but it offers practical day to day help as well an introduction to the Narcotics Anonymous 12-Step program. This book has been a lifesaver for many people!

    Story

    Every schoolchild learns about the mutually beneficial dance of honeybees and flowers: The bee collects nectar and pollen to make honey and, in the process, spreads the flowers' genes far and wide. In The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan ingeniously demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a similarly reciprocal relationship.

    Story
    Where does The Botany of Desire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Though a long read. Scott Brick manages to keep up the pace and deliver a great performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
