This book was outstanding. It was a fantastic blend of how to make your yard into a lush food forest and why to do the things he recommends. I loved the chapters on soil and water. I also liked how he made mention of chickens and other animals but didn't dedicate so much space to it like other books (not where we're at with the process right now, so we just skip all the farm animal talk). I loved how he presented, explained, and recapped his ideas at the end. I can see how this would be a totally overwhelming book for a first book with these concepts. Though far from an expert, at least I've read several related books in the last few months so the terms and ideas he presents are not totally unfamiliar. Still, the gardens he's talking about take lots of vision and lots of dedication to that vision.
