Howevere, the style of the author is barely readable to me. She wrote the book like a roman, describing so many details nobody cares about.
How people look, how they react, their accents, their habits and so on. Unbearable. I am 25% in the book, love the biomimicry subjects, but I have to fight myself to continue reading the book because of this style of writing which probably take half of the book. Not sure if I will read everything word to word. I might just skip some parts or buy another book about Biomimicry entirely.
Life is short, and the authors should understand that. Being wordy just to make the book looks bigger or more impressive it just a waste of my time. At least if it wasn't a science book, it would be ok.
However, at times I find the author a bit too enthusiastic about technology. This is understandable as she is a self-confessed technophyle.
