did not like it

I got 50 pages into this book before I stood up, walked across the room, and threw it in the trash even though I was bored at an airport! DO NOT READ IT. It's full of weird pseudscience and makes ridiculous claims like plants can read your mind. The part where I stopped reading was where the authors claimed that human sex and plant sex are mystically interconnected because pollen smells like semen.

Audrey What is brilliant about this post, is that I can picture your face and your reaction to this book. It plays so vividly in my mind that I laughed aloud thinking about it. Especially you marching over to the garbage can and throwing it out with aplomb. No vascillations about trashing a book in this scenario. I then thought about what you actualy said in your review and followed my initial reaction with a very eloquent...ew!
