Reader Comments

What the readers liked most about this book:

  • I both hated and loved this book.

  • There were so many words that were new to me.

  • I really liked the correlation between the soil and our bodies.

  • It was a hard read, but there was a lot of “takeaway” information that made me want to investigate my own diet and continue to compost and mulch.

  • So glad I read it.

  • This book has a lot more hard science than I normally read.
