How important are plants? Gibson Frazier calmly narrates the many things they provide: medicine, wood, and, eventually, oil as an energy source. From there, the tour of plant life branches out into topics such as how they move, how their memory works, and how they can be addictive. It includes stories of projects such as plantoid machines for gathering data in space and a desalinating floating greenhouse called Jellyfish Barge. Frazier takes it up a notch for author Stefan Mancuso's largest leap into plant study, a European Space Agency flight aboard "The Vomit Comet" to test zinnias in zero gravity. Near the end of the audiobook, listeners will get a strong sense of Mancuso's "moment of pure happiness" through Frazier's narration.
