OK, here it is, my one and only shameless plug — because my publisher says: Hey! You need to at least let people know that the book exists!
So — I’m excited to say that my next book, How The Government Got In Your Backyard, which I co-wrote with my good friend (and old college roommate) Eric Heberlig, who is an Associate Professor of Political Science at UNC Charlotte, is finally out.
In case it isn’t immediately obvious, I love to write. This is my fourth book — and in many ways I think it’s my best. In it Eric and I look at the science and politics behind a number of environmental issues — everything from Plant Patents and Illegal Plants (think marijuana) to Organic Food, Global Warming and Biotechnology. We look at the political right and left, investigate the science behind what they believe, and try to give unbiased opinions. Some people have already let us know that we’re wrong! (Which we find amusing — but that’s another story).
What we don’t try to do in this book is make up your mind for you — that’s your job based on your priorities.
