From world-renowned scientist Jane Goodall, as seen in the new National Geographic documentary Jane , comes a fascinating examination of the critical role that trees and plants play in our world.

SEEDS OF HOPE takes us from Goodall's home in England to her home-away-from-home in Africa, deep inside the Gombe forest, where she and the chimpanzees are enchanted by the fig and plum trees they encounter. She introduces us to botanists around the world, as well as places where hope for plants can be found, such as The Millennium Seed Bank. She shows us the secret world of plants with all their mysteries and potential for healing our bodies as well as Planet Earth.

Looking at the world as an adventurer, scientist, and devotee of sustainable foods and gardening--and setting forth simple goals we can all take to protect the plants around us--Goodall delivers an enlightening story of the wonders we can find in our own backyards.

First person. Chatty. Conversational. Reminiscing, personal. Just what I don't want in what purports to be a, what, objective, factual book. Never got past the first few pages. Sorry Jane. I'll give this one a pass and move on.

Seeds of Hope is as much about Goodall as it is about trees and plants. I really like when someone in their 80s writes about an interesting life. Combination of science, history, memories and future predictions.

Nothing new here, too much self promotional advertising material.

Excellent analysis and commentary on the need to honour and respect Nature and the tie in with global economy
