Last night, I finished reading the book The Orchid Thief: A True Story of Beauty and Obsession by Susan Orlean, which was ostensibly the stimulus for the movie Adaptation. I found some of her outrageously lengthy paragraphs maddening, but the background she laid out about Florida and orchids were good.

OTOH, I gave up on another James Burke book, in this case Circles. I loved Connections, but his other works seem almost like he's a one-trick pony...
