I would have given this book a 5 star rating except there are some typos and editing mistakes. Things like using the word "to" when "too" should have been used. There are a few instances were a word is missing in a sentence every now and then some completely random word was used when it didn't fit. In this case the word was "light" and it threw the entire sentence off. I also had some pages in the second to the last chapter where the lettering/print was faded. There were about 4 paragraphs in all that I had a hard time reading because of it. Other than these things I feel the book was more than worth the price of purchase.
This book inspired me to purchase other books that deal with the subject matter that interested me most- chickens and natural bee keeping. It does offer a nice dip-your-toes level of information; enough to whet the appetite for more in-depth reading. I also enjoy the graffics within the book and I loved the colors of the text boxes; it gave it a modern-retro feel. This book never trails off somewhere on a tangent, the material was always on point. Having two authors also helped to ger differing experiences and opinions while giving the book a nice steady pace. This isn't a 100% "Crunchy and Granola" kind of book but rather a book that helps one include these things into their lives. It's not an all or nothing approach the authors take, it's "start small and see where it takes you" experience.Read more ›
