Yesterday, I finished a non-fiction book that was somewhat unsatisfying, called Seeds of Wealth: Five Plants That Made Men Rich by Henry Hobhouse. I'd read another book by him about plants and their affect on humanity which I enjoyed very much, but this book needed more editing. There was significant repetition which diminished my experience reading it. Still, there's some useful information in it about the history and importance of timber, wine grapes, rubber, tobacco and coffee, though the latter was the worst offender in the repetition area.

A "maybe". Check it out of the library.
