I believe that taking Fukuoka's ideas about natural farming and adapting them to other parts of the world may, in the long run, offer the only way forward for both agriculture, nature, and by extension, the human race.

I really love Masanobu's philosophy. He also appears to be quite brilliant.
That being said, this book didn't give enough actionable advice for me and I will see if I can find another of his books at the library

Intriguing and interesting! Intriguing because I hadn't read One Straw Revolution first -- my local bookshops didn't have it. So this was my first exposure to Fukuoka. And interesting because it is! An eye opener, and more thrilling than any thriller!

This book contains some useful diagrams that I will revisit. The second half, featuring the practical application of natural farming, was enlightening. The first half went on a little too long.
