Oakland's Ed Rosenthal has dedicated his life to his passion of marijuana cultivation and advocacy. He's spent years fighting for marijuana rights and authoring numerous books on how to properly grow the plant.
Unfortunately most achievements in this field have gone largely unnoticed until Rosenthal was recently featured in "The Art of Doing: How Superachievers Do What They Do and How They Do It So Well," a new book by authors Camille Sweeney and Josh Gosfield that profiles several individuals who have accomplished nearly impossible feats in their respective crafts.
Rosenthal's chapter on "How to Grow Killer Weed" sits next to other chapters dedicated to 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin, baseball legend Yogi Berra, IndyCar champion Helio Castroneves, and indie rock band OK Go.
About time that a world-class marijuana horticulturist receive the same credit as actors, musicians, and athletes.
"The Art of Doing" is available now from Plume/Penguin.
