"Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted & thoughtful observation rather than protracted & thoughtless labour; & of looking at plants & animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single-product system."-Bill Mollison
I read "The Soil Will Save Us" over Christmas (Kristin Ohlson). I'd mentioned it as a possible gift, and my dear wife purchased it for me and stuffed it in the stocking. It was entertaining, but not what I thought it would be. Written for a popular audience with pop science sprinkled in here and there, it wasn't anything I hadn't read on the interwebs or on this forum. Very light on soil science. So I WOULDN'T recommend that book.
