This might have been better if the author had come across as more likeable. And I don't know why he included the non-farming stories in which he killed songbirds and traumatized chickens on Christmas day.

For a book titled 'My Empire of Dirt', he went chapters without writing of his farm, instead going on about how he wanted his wife to have an abortion, or how he ruined a family get together by being drunk and obnoxious.

Overall, not inspiring in the least.
