Should you read this? Despite the complaints, my answer is yes. It's the kind of message that you can't hear too often. Salatin gets under your skin. You really feel like his crusade should be your crusade. You start thinking of things that you can do to defeat Monsanto, CAFOs, industrial corn, and the rest. Your list of acceptable restaurants dwindles. Your shopping habits change dramatically. You see the countryside with new eyes when you go on car trips. You sneer (moderately) when you see a weedy field with a few cows and no electric fencing. You get hungry.
Buy the book, read it, and then pass it on to a friend. You'll be glad you did.
Whether you are living on the land or are surviving in suburbia a and growing vegetables for your family you will enjoy this book and, I am sure, get some really good ideas from it. Maybe the best of those ideas will be to trust yourself and to emulate nature.

This isn't a book that is written for a specific audience, it is penned broad enough that anyone from any walk of life will enjoy, and learn much from.
Will you like this book? If you're of the Gene Logsdon, Wendell Berry, Eliot Coleman persuasion - or want to be - then you'll love it and should go ahead and get it.
