i A room of one s own is there anybody who hasn t at one time or another wished for such a place hasn t turned those soft words over until they d assumed a habitable shape i br br When writer Michael Pollan decided to plant a garden the result was an award winning treatise on the borders between nature and contemporary life the acclaimed bestseller i Second Nature i Now Pollan turns his sharp insight to the craft of building as he recounts the process of designing and constructing a small one room structure on his rural Connecticut property a place in which he hoped to read write and daydream built with his two own unhandy hands br br Invoking the titans of architecture literature and philosophy from Vitrivius to Thoreau from the Chinese masters of feng shui to the revolutionary Frank Lloyd Wright Pollan brilliantly chronicles a realm of blueprints joints and trusses as he peers into the ephemeral nature of houseness itself From the spark of an idea to the search for a perfect site to the raising of a ridgepole Pollan revels in the infinitely detailed complex process of creating a finished structure At once superbly written informative and enormously entertaining i A Place of My Own i is for anyone who has ever wondered how the walls around us take shape and how we might shape them ourselves br br i A Place of My Own i recounts his two and a half year journey of discovery in an absorbing narrative that deftly weaves the day to day work of design and building from siting to blueprint from the pouring of foundations to finish carpentry with reflections on everything form the power of place to shape our lives to the question of what constitutes real work in a technological society br br A book about craft that is itself beautifully crafted linking the world of the body and material things with the realm of mind heart and spirit i A Place of My Own i has received extraordinary praise, b i Fire water air earth our most trusted food expert recounts the story of his culinary education i b br br In i Cooked i Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen Here he discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements fire water air and earth to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink Apprenticing himself to a succession of culinary masters Pollan learns how to grill with fire cook with liquid bake bread and ferment everything from cheese to beer In the course of his journey he discovers that the cook occupies a special place in the world standing squarely between nature and culture Both realms are transformed by cooking and so in the process is the cook br br Each section of i Cooked i tracks Pollan s effort to master a single classic recipe using one of the four elements A North Carolina barbecue pit master tutors him in the primal magic of fire a Chez Panisse trained cook schools him in the art of braising a celebrated baker teaches him how air transforms grain and water into a fragrant loaf of bread and finally several mad genius fermentos a tribe that includes brewers cheese makers and all kinds of picklers reveal how fungi and bacteria can perform the most amazing alchemies of all The reader learns alongside Pollan but the lessons move beyond the practical to become an investigation of how cooking involves us in a web of social and ecological relationships with plants and animals the soil farmers our history and culture and of course the people our cooking nourishes and delights Cooking above all connects us br br The effects of not cooking are similarly far reaching Relying upon corporations to process our food means we consume huge quantities of fat sugar and salt disrupt an essential link to the natural world and weaken our relationships with family and friends In fact i Cooked i argues taking back control of cooking may be the single most important step anyone can take to help make the American food system healthier and more sustainable Reclaiming cooking as an act of enjoyment and self reliance learning to perform the magic of these everyday transformations opens the door to a more nourishing life br br br, Today buffeted by one food fad after another America is suffering from what can only be described as a national eating disorder Will it be fast food tonight or something organic Or perhaps something we grew ourselves The question of what to have for dinner has confronted us since man first discovered fire But as Michael Pollan explains in this revolutionary book how we answer it now at the dawn of the twenty first century may determine our survival as a species Packed with profound surprises The Omnivore s Dilemma is changing the way Americans think about the politics perils and pleasures of eating, b The book that helped make Michael Pollan the i New York Times i bestselling author of i Cooked i and i The Omnivore s Dilemma i one of the most trusted food experts in America b br br Every schoolchild learns about the mutually beneficial dance of honeybees and flowers The bee collects nectar and pollen to make honey and in the process spreads the flowers genes far and wide In b b i The Botany of Desire i Michael Pollan ingeniously demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a similarly reciprocal relationship He masterfully links four fundamental human desires sweetness beauty intoxication and control with the plants that satisfy them the apple the tulip marijuana and the potato In telling the stories of four familiar species Pollan illustrates how the plants have evolved to satisfy humankind s most basic yearnings And just as we ve benefited from these plants we have also done well by them So who is really domesticating whom
