Review

A unique and groundbreaking contribution to innovation through bio-inspired design. One of the most inspiring books of the last decades, which profoundly boosts eco-effective innovations to grasp desperately needed disruptive changes for a planet with 10 billion people. * Professor Michael Braungart, co-author of The Upcycle and Cradle to Cradle * [A] richly detailed, meticulous, well-written book. These well-crafted tales of bio-inspired innovation will entrance general readers and warrant the close attention of scientists and technologists. * Kirkus reviews (starred) * Instead of trying to crudely dominate the world around us, it's nice to learn that more and more smart humans are trying to figure out how we might use the clues from other species to fit in a little more easily on this tired old planet. * Bill McKibben, bestselling author of Eaarth * A skilled journalist and science writer, Khan makes complex topics easy to understand as we travel around the world to meet scientists, engineers, and the plants and animals that are inspiring breakthrough solutions to some of our greatest technological challenges. She doesn't shy away from in-depth explanations of the biology and the engineering behind innovations from material science to nanotechnology to robotics and more, while bringing researchers' stories of discovery to life through her enjoyable, informative writing style. This book is a worthwhile read on many levels. * Jay Harman, author of The Shark's Paintbrush: Biomimicry and How Nature is Inspiring Innovation and CEO of PAX Scientific * As a science writer for the Los Angeles Times, Khan brings to her focus on health and technology a journalist's demands for authenticity and experience as well as a storyteller's desire to enthrall an audience. Hopeful and exciting reading for the future of personal and planetary challenges. * Booklist *
