    "This is a very interesting book, highly regarded by those who own it. It is based on growing plants in an ecological manner that makes it easy and pleasurable to garden. This edition is updated with a chapter on growing food in an urban setting, where there is restricted space for growing. There are some illustrations reproduced on the web page that depict technical, very useful instructions for planting. This is an excellent example of a book about permaculture."

    "This book will make you think about mushrooms in a whole different way than just a nuisance in your yard or an item on your plate. It turns out, there's a lot more to learn from them than we think, and if you have an agriculturalist or survivalist in your friends group, they may be interested in the solutions this book offers."
