    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.

    "Thought provoking."

    Story

    It is interesting to step away from our human centric view for a bit, and put ourselves into the perspective of the other life forms that we encounter all the time. It is a bit deflating to think we are doing the bidding of plants, but there are some very valid points here.

    This viewpoint is put forth with enough humor and personal insight to take a somewhat dry topic and turn it into a engauging narrative.
