Prince Charles Nabs Book Deal

Prince Charles will tap into one of the world's most basic plots--man v. nature--when he pens his book Harmony, which Harper Collins has just acquired. According to the publisher's press release, the book will argue that humankind's "relentless pursuit of economic growth and technological progress" has made us "dangerously disconnected from Nature." The book will take a "philosophical" path to reconnect humanity with "ancient wisdom," and will incorporate the prince's personal experience raising the global warming alarm before it was chic. Publication is scheduled for 2010, and a corresponding children's picture book is slated for 2011.
