** The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollen (2002)

A really unique book, an in depth analysis of four plants: the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato.  Some history, some biology and chemistry, some folklore, some funny anecdotes, and much more.  Between his words on genetic engineering and the use of pesticides, organic sounds better and better. (non-fiction)
