it was amazing

I love the premise of this book... plants have figured out how to tame us, instead of the other way around. We breed plants for the qualities that nature itself would help these plants keep, strength, attractibility to animals (namely us), strong roots and stems.

I learned more about apples from this book than I did in the three years that I picked them in New Hampshire.

Good, quick read about the relationship of plants and humans.
