Reviews

"Pollan shines a light on our own nature as well as on our implication in the natural world."
--The New York Times

"[Pollan] has a wide-ranging intellect, an eager grasp of evolutionary biology and a subversive streak that helps him to root out some wonderfully counterintuitive points. His prose both shimmers and snaps, and he has a knack for finding perfect quotes in the oddest places.... Best of all, Pollan really loves plants."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A wry, informed pastoral."
--The New Yorker

"We can give no higher praise to the work of this superb science writer/ reporter than to say that his new book is as exciting as any you'll read."
--Entertainment Weekly

"A whimsical, literary romp through man's perpetually frustrating and always unpredictable relationship with nature."
--Los Angeles Times
