I'll have a better idea in a few months if the advice in this book is substantively effective, but it's presented in an engaging, lavishly illustrated, and easy-to-read style. I was most appreciative of the overall philosophy: one of pragmatism, that looks at the concrete benefits of organic gardening and how the back yard gardener can implement organic practices without inveigling or lecturing.

One of the most useful, practical and informative books I know on the practice of organic gardening. A reference we turn to every year come planting season and when diagnosing unusual plant ailments. Every step is well illustrated and explained, making organic gardening accessible to even a rank novice.

Great color photos. Sections on ornamental and vegetable garden planting. Vegetable gardening section has nice crop rotation directions, and planning. Also has great individual vegetable information, pests and diseases, fruits, herbs, tools, etc...

This would be a great, comprehensive gardening book to start with... wasn't a whole lot of super-interesting new stuff after the number of gardening books I've been reading.
