Abstract:

Few writers approach their subjects with the rigor, passion, and perspective that's typical of Michael Pollan who convincingly argues that plants--even our own front lawns--have evolved to use us as much as we use them. New York Times Magazine contributor and author of The omnivore's dilemma and In defense of food, Pollan is known for his investigative stories about food, agriculture, and the environment. In this exciting TEDTalk, Pollan asks us to see the world from a plant's-eye view. "His writing--an engaging melange of travelogue, economic analysis, and sheer, tactile joy in the pleasures of food--has made him a favorite among the foodie and enviro crowds alike," says Grist.
