This book is not QUITE as good as the topic it covers, but that can be overcome if you are an interested type of person like me. The idea that we - human beings in general - are unique for our innovation is something that we'll find challenged over and over again if we look hard enough, and I'd expected this book to fit that description. However, this is more an exploration of the very humans seek to use what nature ALREADY does to make our tools more efficient. It's a good book,and I learned a lot from the read, even if I felt like I ought to be taking notes.
