Authors Tompkins and Bird, whose previous book, "The Secret Life of Plants" was a landmark documenting the emotional and psychic life of plants, returned with a potentially even more far-reaching book, "Secrets of the Soil." Anyone who thinks dirt is anything less than the single greatest life-giving force on the planet should read this book. Anyone wanting a good understanding of the principles of biodynamic agriculture, or who thinks overpopulation is the biggest reason for starvation and malnourishment should read this book. And anyone who wants exposure to the coherent comprehensive case against chemical agriculture and industrial farming and monocropping should read it as well. We *can* feed and nourish everyone if we stop degrading and denaturing our soil as a matter of standard operating procedure.
