Having this book by my side feels like having a favourite mentor standing right behind me Review by Burra Maluca, reviewing for permies.com
Review
Just occasionally, I pick up a book and then kick myself for not having bought it sooner. I’m going to be carrying the scar for a few years to come having realised what I’ve been missing out on with this gem. Having this book by my side feels like having a favourite mentor standing right behind me ready to whisper words of wisdom in my ear the moment I need them. (Posted on 05/11/2012)

One of the main thrust is to inspire ordinary people to grown food especially in urban areas. I fully recommended it. (Posted on 05/11/2012)
A phenomenal work ... Review by Permaculture Works
Review
the section on fruit and nuts recognises the enormous potential as a staple food crop. For my money the book is worth the admission price for this chapter alone. (Posted on 05/11/2012)

A mansion of a book ... Importantly, Whitefield has finally pulled permaculture out of the southern hemisphere and given those of us living in a cool temperate climate a book we can really use.
