Janine Benyus follows the maverick researchers who are harnessing DNA's coding power to make blindingly fast computers; discovering miracle drugs by observing what animals eat, and much more.Hide synopsis

I bought this book because I thought it would present more ideas about how to design products to be more like nature. Unfortunately, I couldn't get through the first three chapters because... It was like taking science class all over again.
It's worth a shot, I suppose, but I'd recommend Cradle to Cradle over this, if you're looking for what I was.
