    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.

    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    This is not a book for those looking for hard facts. Contrary to the book's description, you'll learn very little about the co-evolution of humans and plants. Most of the text consists out of lenghty contemplations and author's own, rather poetical, thoughts about humans and plants.
