Here's an excerpt from this book "It's high time we stop lining the pockets of the fat cat industry executives who have no problem poisoning people to expand their bottom line. If you doubt the fact that you're slowly but surely being poisoned, maybe this will change your mind."

I thought eventually the author would get over this very long diatribe and actually give some useful information, but it just went on and on and on. Halfway through the book and he's still lecturing. Enough already. This is supposed to be a guide to growing organic produce, not a personal essay.

I also found it very disturbing that the author kept giving his opinions as "facts". He states that people who eat organic foods get sick significantly less than people who don't. He doesn't site any statistics, but goes on and on some more and then finally says it's his opinion. Please keep your opinions at home where they belong. If you have statistics, great.

Roughly a fourth of the way through the book, the author mentions a soil test using Calgon. Is that a water softener? He never explains and the preaching is really really irritating. He just comes off as really arrogant.

My final gripe is the author's name. Is it Michelle or Michael? It changes throughout the book. The cover says Michelle. The copyright and book interior say Michael. That's not the only typo; there are many.

By the end of the book, I was looking forward to the last section, on pests. It was useless. No recipes for making natural insecticidal sprays and the ones mentioned (which had no recipe or how-to) are dangerous to use around children.
