LibraryThing Review

Recensione dell'utente  - jimocracy - LibraryThing

I have liked the authors other books but this one was just too boring for me. If you like gardening, lawns, weeds, fertilizer, mulch, mowing, etcetera, maybe this is the book for you. Leggi recensione completa

I loved Botany of Desire but trudged through Second Nature. Not finding Pollan's personal gardening history & musings there upon particularly interesting. I did appreciate his notion, however, of Lawn ... Leggi recensione completa

Recensione dell'utente  - Kristen - Goodreads

Second Nature was interesting, but the writing style grated on me after a while. It seemed like Michael Pollan (whose writing I generally like) felt the need to use extraordinarily bombastic language ... Leggi recensione completa

Review: Second Nature: A Gardener's Education

Recensione dell'utente  - Robyn Severe - Goodreads

Mr. Pollan I think enjoys listening to himself pontificate a bit too much. I just wanted to read a book about making a garden. All in all, I'd say it was boring, a slow read, but had some good bits. Leggi recensione completa
