What we're reading at our house...

Stefano Mancuso teaches at the University of Florence. He is one of the world's leading neurobotanists. In this marvelous and accessible book, he reminds us that humans are late-comers on the Earth scene, as reckless and destructive in their interactions with the rest of nature as toddlers who have somehow come into possession of a loaded firearm.

Plants, on the other hand, were here long before us, and have worked out rules for living in mutually sustaining community. Our species desperately needs to learn and follow the plant nation's rules for living. Unguided, we are turning the planet into a dangerous and hostile place for our survival.

Henry's books.
