the book is very good.Only thing many things covered in this book were already available on your blog which I had read earlier.But there was a lot much to know.For a complete beginner with no knowledge on organic gardening as I was a few months ago before reading your blog,this book is awesome.

Great book to pick up if you want to grow organic vegetables on your terrace.
