    From the cover I somehow didn't expect this book to be as substantial as it turned out to be It's full of fascinating clearly presented information I especially enjoyed the chapter on plant toxins presented in a gently humorous tone Striking the correct balance between shrilly smug skepticism peruse any atheism forum online for an example of the tone and wide eyed hippified tree hugging compassion is tricky and I believe Johnson has pull

    I was excited to read this book but found myself bored by many of the topics Johnson lingers on and had to force myself to finish it For example first fifth of the book was about naturalmidwife births versus hospital births I thought the book was going to be about natural food and consumer products versus their mainstream counterparts which it wasn't When Johnson shared personal stories especially about his hi

    I really enjoyed the take this author has on natural vs technological issues He was raised by hippies and is drawn to natural approaches but also understands science and wants to take the best of that into account His agonizing and searching also coincided with his beginning a family and so issues of birth nutrition and i

    More philosophical than practical and a bit disjointed in organization but interesting enough to hold my attention

In this age of climate change killer germs and obesity it's easy to feel as if we've fallen out of synch with the global ecosystem This ecological anxiety has polarized a new generation of Americans many are drawn to natural solutions and organic lifestyles while others rally around high tech development and industrial efficiencies Johnson argues that both views when taken to extremes can be harmful even deadlyJ. I wanted to like this book I m a skeptic and I m a hippie of sorts I can get exasperated at what some of my friends are willing to believe without credible evidence and apparently without much understanding of how to judge credibility This does not at all apply just to hippies but that s the author s background so it s what he s looking at and it sounds like an interesting premise But I don t think the execution lives up to the potentialThe book is about his inuiry into all natural versuswhatever it s versus Sometimes science sometimes big business sometimes politics However it s not a coherent whole that builds its points to a conclusion It tries to be that but much of it was previously published as essays and even with editing which could have been better it is lacking in continuity Worse he s far too arbitrary to be considered impartial If you re going to refute unscientific beliefs you shouldn t make jumps of logic He does When it comes to conclusions he seems to go on intuition Plus at times he is just plain annoying One thing I found disturbing was his story about being at an anti nuclear waste dumping event in the Southern California desert and having an epiphany about the people being flaky and the demonstration being useless He seemed to think that the desert seemed like a drab dead place not much worth saving I ve been to those demonstrations and while I m not sure how much they help I ve found that the desert is a beautiful place with an ecosystem much alive and varied than he noticed Plus while belittling the demonstrators he ignored the actual hazards that would come with the waste When trying to be evenhanded means considering organizations with major financial motivations on one side and well intentioned but possibly misguided people on the otherI don t think there s a scale that can weigh thatThe part I found most interesting was about managing the forests where he looks at all the approaches to solving the problems He gives several approaches figures out why they won t work and finally comes up with some hopeful precedents that could work including the commons approach Overall the author seems like a likable person and he s an investigative reporter who gets into interesting subject matter I would definitely read by him
