Live 2 Nite @ 8 PM EST Michael Largo joins Scott Cluthe to talk about his latest book.
David Attenborough meets Lemony Snicket in The Big Bad Book of Botany, Michael Largo’s entertaining and enlightening one-of-a-kind compendium of the world’s most amazing and bizarre plants, their history, and their lore.
The Big, Bad Book of Botany introduces a world of wild, wonderful, and weird plants. Some are so rare, they were once more valuable than gold. Some found in ancient mythology hold magical abilities, including the power to turn a person to stone. Others have been used by assassins to kill kings, and sorcerers to revive the dead. Here, too, is vegetation with astonishing properties to cure and heal, many of which have long since been lost with the advent of modern medicine.
Organized alphabetically, The Big, Bad Book of Botany combines the latest in biological information with bizarre facts about the plant kingdom’s oddest members, including a species that is more poisonous than a cobra and a prehistoric plant that actually “walked.” Largo takes you through the history of vegetables and fruits and their astonishing agricultural evolution. Throughout, he reveals astonishing facts, from where the world’s first tree grew to whether plants are telepathic.
Featuring more than 150 photographs and illustrations, The Big, Bad Book of Botany is a fascinating, fun A-to-Z encyclopedia for all ages that will transform the way we look at the natural world.
“...I enjoy nature too much.... I know the tree feels it when the wind blows through it. It probably goes, “Ohhhh, this is wonderful.” And that´s how I feel when I´m singing some songs. It´s wonderful.”
"Plus, I’m crazy for birds and animals and puppies. And I love exotic things. I’ve had llamas, peacocks, a rhea, which is the second largest bird in the world, a macaw, which is the largest parrot from South America, pheasants, racoons, chickens….everything. Now, I’m gonna get a faun. And a flamingo.... I want a chimpanzee – they’re so sweet. Oh, I have such a good time with the animals. I have a wonderful relationship with animals, they really understand me.... I’d like to get into the whole veterinarian thing and learn the behaviour of animals. Dogs may see in black and white. Dogs might even see the wind. And what about the king cobra – what makes him come up when they play that pipe?"
Michael Jackson, Melody Maker music newspaper, 1980

Write Pack explores writing from fiction based on the headlines. Writing fiction from the headlines is a form of immediate writing. Is it possible to write fiction from the headlines or is this a luxury saved for the TV and Comic book media? Is it possible to do this with other forms of writings?
Do you have to be a superhuman fast writer where you produce 50 books a year? Or is it a crap shoot of timing where you can’t predict it? Do you have to pick a long running trend to be able to write fiction based on the headlines and keep it relevant? For example—murder, bulling, so on…. Or should you be a futurist and focus on science fiction?
Is writing from the headlines really just a form of research? Does it have to be immediate? Can it be too soon?
How do you keep your stories relevant when your story comes out? If it is too soon it might turn off the audience and the writer runs the possible of inaccuracy.
Can you use the headlines to write historical fiction? Mystery? Science Fiction? Fantasy? Real Crime? Other genres?
On the other side of the coin: When do you start to feel like a vulture or a writer version of an ambulance chaser? Can the trends burn out?
Another way to use the headlines is to write a reformation book. Grab a cause and write about it as there is nothing better than passion.

Last month, A Fox News report titled “US-made Stinger missiles have likely fallen into ISIS hands, officials say” warned that “U.S. officials with access to the latest U.S. intelligence on Iraq told Fox News it “appears likely/probable” that U.S.-made Stinger missiles have fallen into the hands of Sunni insurgents.”
And today Middle East sources confirm that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters acquired “Cobra”, “Strela” and “stinger” sophisticated heat missiles from army bases they have taken over in recent days, the source said (start at 2:00 and then at 3:00 which doesn’t need translation “Strela” and “Stinger”):
And if the U.S. failed to heed the warnings before 9/11, that terrorists plan to blow up planes and buildings, it seems they are not paying attention. While they focus on Russia over its handling of the downed Malaysia Airlines jet, they focus little on Islamists, our sources show that terrorists have obtained such weapons from as far back as 2012 which we can easily obtain footage showing videos released by the terrorists on the use of Cobra anti-aircraft missile fired at Mig jet fighter:
Every American needs to understand that the entire national press is controlled, and is simply giving you the "news" you are supposed to have. Very soon, all alternative sources of news, including this website, will be shut down. That time draws ever closer.
