liked it

For someone who is trying to focus intently on the real nitty-gritty of building and the physical nature of constructing something, he waxes sentimental and philosophical a bit too much for my liking. All in all, it was good-- I certainly would like a little shack in which to read-- but Pollan tries to cover his intellectual elitism with an attempt to do something physically laborious. The facade, in my opinion, is a bit transparent. Would recommend other Pollan books before this one.
