The Botany of Desire

One of my favorite books by Michael Pollen has been made into a documentary on PBS. The Botany of Desire is broken down into 4 agriculture crops which he expresses as 4 different emotional expressions. The apple is sweetness, the tulip for beauty, marijuana is intoxication and finally the potato represents control. The book was really good and the documentary only enhances it with the amazing flora visuals. The program aired recently but you can watch a preview on their site. And as a bonus, it's narrated by Frances McDormand.
