Although I am not a gardener--I joke that I have a black thumb, I do understand the attraction and love to walk through communal gardens and so forth. In this early book, Michael Pollan, known now for ... Leggi recensione completa

I came across Michael Pollan's Second Nature by accident. As I was shelving the book, a force came over me demanding that I scan the pages. I did so and placed the book on the shelf, but then, minutes ... Leggi recensione completa

I like Michael Pollan just fine, although his extremely digressive style gets on my nerves probably more than it should. There were a lot of interesting tidbits in here - I particularly liked the ... Leggi recensione completa

Recensione dell'utente  - Courtney - Goodreads

While there are some interesting nuggets in this book if you are not a gardener it is painful to try and read endless chapters waxing prosaic about weeds, roses and seed catalogs. Leggi recensione completa

I didn't quite know what to expect from this book. While gardening isn't something I'm really into, I was curious to hear Pollan's eloquent words given his astute understanding of our food culture ... Leggi recensione completa

Recensione dell'utente  - Jennifer Xu - Goodreads

I can't believe I've read so many Michael Pollan books - I guess that just means the guy is everywhere!

Recensione dell'utente  - Laura - Goodreads

Honestly, a bit boring but I ended up finding myself quite enjoying some of his chapters as he mused on gardening topics while he cultivated his garden. I particularly liked his chapters on the seed ... Leggi recensione completa
