I first bought a copy of this for a brother graduating high school who was interested in biology. After skimming a couple chapters, I was completely hooked, and had to buy a second copy to give to him, since I was still reading the original! The writing neatly blends hardcore science into the real world, showing you how copying the fundamentals of nature can help create sustainable and environmentally-sensible technology for the future. And it isn't all about technology -- one of the best chapters is about alternative approaches to agriculture. A must-read for aspiring biology majors, environmental engineers, or anyone with an interest in environmental science.

I enjoyed the book thoroughly because it included both an intriguing look at the future of technology and a humbling reminder that a much-needed change in our outlook of nature is approaching (or arrived already for some). I was impressed by the various examples of ingenuity and innovation of biomimics and their biological inspirations. The book was written with colorful language and clever references and avoids stifling scientific detail. It contains all the specificity needed to wet one's whistle for a fascinating topic without getting dry.
