Fantastic seemingly quality information. I know Coleman can get criticized because of his popularity, but from this book I can completely understand this popularity. He is clear, seemingly practical, and has a sound philosophy to base from. I have no idea if he truly 'practices what he preaches' and all but I love what he preaches. His intentional and thought-as-input style of farming is exactly what drew me to the field in the first place. I definitely feel like this is a reference book that I will draw upon in the future and a great buy. I don't necessarily know if his methods are all applicable to a raised bed style farm like mine but I do hope to use some of his practices. And even more important in the long term may be his practice of continual inquisition, observation and improvement. ( )
