I checked this out because I hoped it would tell me how to *fix* what was wrong with my vegetable garden. I already know what's wrong with it - my yard is so shady it's practically forest understory.

Unfortunately this book's only advice for "not enough full sun" is "cut down some trees". Sorry, nope. If we cut down the trees we'd have to get air conditioning in the house and that's not worth a few zucchini. (also there would be no more maple syrup and walnuts and pecans!)
I read most of this. Some of the crop specific pages I skipped over. It inspired me to plant sweet potatoes and melons in the future, as well as a lot of other fun veggies I wish I had space for. Loved the color photos. It gave very specific ideas for adding beneficial pests into the garden as well as different pest solutions from organic to not so organic. I also liked the polyculture advice, which I'm trying, and so far is working this growing season.
Now I have the answer to the vegetable garden version of 'what fresh hell is this?', fully illustrated with color photographs.

Extremely useful guide, with tips on how to fix what's ailing your garden. Only complaint I have is that it doesn't address growing zones (state-specific guides would be a great future project, Mr. Deardorff, I'm just sayin'.)
What's wrong with my garden is that it's mine. But that book lets me pretend that it's fixable, anyways. I don't think I am going to do anything differently, really, so it's more like a fantasy escapist read, but it's still very reassuring.

I like the A-Z index of veggies and their pest and diseases. I also liked the pics of the problems. The solutions was also informative.
Nice book. Gave me some ideas for the garden this year.
