- Inspiring must read for all permies Review by Carl Legge
What comes through loud & clear is Holzer's sense of challenge to the orthodoxy. And it's not just a theoretical, academic challenge; it's more practical. He's constantly asking us to examine why we do what we do and think of more sustainable ways of doing it.
The book is well and helpfully illustrated with photographs and clear diagrams. There are extensive listings of recommended plant species and varieties. On the negative side, the absence of an index makes it harder to find and cross check interesting information. I hope that any new edition might have this rectified.
