Capricious fate, or at least Amazon.com

Amazon.com is trying to sell me The Hidden Connections: Integrating The Biological, Cognitive, And Social Dimensions Of Life Into A Science Of Sustainability by Fritjof Capra.

I suppose this recommendation is somehow vaguely inspired by my buying geology textbooks for the tsaiko, which is a more scary thought than if it were just random. The ever present review concludes: "The Hidden Connections will spark enormous debate in the scientific community and inspire us to think about the future of humanity in a new way."

(For those who don't get the joke: In the scientific community, Capra is right up there with Nostradamus and the Animal Liberation Front, after he used his professional titles to lend credibility to his prozelyting for oriental religion.)
