This book is way too in-depth and technical to be considered "popular science." It made me wish I were back in high school--when I was a lot more familiar with the terms and ideas explored in this book. However, it is an amazing work, and, by the end of it, you will know a helluva lot more about photosynthesis and its importance than you would've ever cared to know before. It is well worth the time and exploration of the dictionary to dig into this one. The global warming stuff--which is the book's punch line--is incredibly frustrating, though. It makes you want to reach out and strangle every politician and global warming denier.
