This is a passionate study of the importance of plants.
I found it as enjoyable and well written as her previous books on apes.

It is highly recommended but readers should be aware that the Washington Post and the New York Times have said recently that there is evidence that several passages in the book have been 'borrowed' without attribution. Other critics have said openly that they have found clear evidence of plagiarism in the book as well as some 'dodgy' science.

If these charges are proven, which seems likely, it would be regarded as a very serious offence in the literary world, arguably the most serious.

It would be a great shame if 78 year-old Jane saw a distinguished career end in this way.
