The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World

The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the sixth anniversary of its publication comes an unabridged edition of the national bestseller and "New York Times" Notable Book. Simultaneous with the trade paper edition of the author's latest book, "The Omnivore's Dilemma." Unabridged. 8 CDs.

Review:

"On the sixth anniversary of its original publication, Pollan's scientific twist on the human/plant symbiosis makes its audio debut. Pollan preaches a unique sort of romantic environmentalism where humans and plants satisfy each other's desires for survival, enjoyment, satisfaction and escape. He uses the apple, tulip, Cannabis and potato to develop his ideas, offering the histories of each and how they developed reciprocal relationships with the humans with whom each interacted. Scott Brick exudes excitement and breathes life into the recording — the timbre of his voice offering just the right touch of humor and depth. Listeners will feel like Brick truly loves the book and loves reading it aloud. It's a great combination for listeners: interesting subject, great writing and wonderful reading. Definitely not to be missed. (Reviews, Apr. 9, 2001)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
