What the community says about The Botany of Desire

    "This is a really unique and interesting book that combines information about trees and human nature. It draws connections between plants and humans, which is a very interesting perspective to take. I read this in close to one sitting, just because I was fascinated by the author's unique perspective and the thoughts that he had to share. It definitely made me think, which is more than I can say for most books I read lately. "

    "This book is rather interesting if you like botany and herbology. I read it and it's in 4 parts involving the relationship between a plant and the human race. So if you like plants, give this book a try."

    "First of all, if you have never read any of Michael Pollan's books, you are missing out. I would suggest reading The Omnivore's Dilemma first, but this book is very good also. It is a look at how instead of us conquering and "domesticating" four kinds of plants, they have in fact figured out how to use us to propagate their species. The section on apples is my favorite because it seems like this plant completely reinvented itself just so we would enjoy it and spread it around."

    "Michael Pollan is one of the most trusted food experts and this book helped him get famous. It is a number one best selling book with 4.5 stars on amazon. This book is less about reciepees to cook but more about the plants and how things are in nature."

    "This book isn't about solitude at all. It's about evolution and plants. It's interesting and it does talk about human nature to some degree but it isn't about solitude. "

    "This is a sweet and easy read with a lot of humor. You have to realize it is a bit of a joke and read it with that mentality but if you do you'll love this read."
