I am not a highly educated person but try to learn all the time. High school education is the extent of my "book schooling" but I have learned from a few people and from my many mistakes. I love the outdoors and animals and have tried to do things right for each. Most people around me (some very educated) do not care about nature just how much they can get out of something to make a profit in the shortest amount of time without thinking about what they are doing to their animals or land. They wonder why their animals are not getting pregnant and why their grass is getting thinner even though they put on the fertilizer they were told to. This book has the answers.
I bought this book to help with my pastures but it has helped with so much more. There are many books out there on the subject but Mr. Savory explains it in great detail with common sense and actually gives you a plan to follow. His mistakes, yes he owns up to them and accepts responsibility for them, takes you through them so you can see how he progressed in his thinking and experience.
His quote about "true profit" will hang in every area I work to remind me of the Whole. Thanks Mr. Savory you have inspired me!!!
That being so, and judging by Mr. Savory's broad success among his diverse clientele, this book needs to be on the shelf of every head-of-household, business owner/exec, store or service manager, state and social worker, etc. It will be well worth your time to work your way through it, even if you find yourself having to skip over the sections where he delves into grazing and crop management (though it would be well worth your time to read those parts too). What's nice is that the tools, scalable-management guidelines, and testing questions he provides all have stand-alone value, meaning you can immediately benefit from simply selecting and studying suitable sections. Of course, the true benefits will come with the complete adoption of his management system, so I'd at least encourage you to peruse these pages and test his framework on aspects of your life.
Do the world a favor - buy it; read it; live it.
This is a radical, world changing book. If you let it, it will change the way you think about your life and about the world.
It is certainly changing the way I make decisions.
It's effect on me will take a while to sink in ... I'll probably come back in a year's time to add to this review!
There have been some criticisms of Savory's work. This article refutes those criticisms in a useful way, I think, just in case you were worried.
