Review: Second Nature: A Gardener's Education

Recensione dell'utente  - Mike - Goodreads

I keep trying to find a Pollan book that I don't like, but can't seem to get there. Pollan's writing and insight are dead on once again as he looks at the American take on gardening. Read this one in preparation for making our garden........Highly recommended. Leggi recensione completa

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

Review: Second Nature: A Gardener's Education

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! Anyway, this one is my favorite thusfar because he takes a very, very realist approach to environmentalism, appealing to humans' central motif of ownership to get a job done.

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

Recensione dell'utente  - Lacey - Goodreads

This is a book about gardening that is about more than gardening: Pollan incorporates politics, culture, history, sex, even theology, into this book that is at once a practical how-to guide, a ... Leggi recensione completa
