Recommended for: Anyone who wants to grow their own food
Read in April, 2007

This is a very good book for anyone interested in growing food crops in a limited space. His techniques are very different from normal "row" planting but they certainly produce (sorry, I couldn't resist the pun).

On the downside, the I thought the author was kind of braggy and boastful. It was basically do it his way or don't do it at all. he's very particular on the three components used to make the "soil" in his system (one of which is had to find except for ordering from him at $$$ prices). However subsitutions can be made despite what he says.

Other than that, it a great resource for learning to grow food especially when coupled with Joy of Gardening by Dick Raymond.
